All you need for this is one spice! This is how my mom cooks it for our family and everyone loves it. So simple and tasty, Even though I make it myself hers always taste better!


  1. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat.
  2. Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning on both sides of Tilapia. More or less seasoning depending on how spicy you pefer it.
  3. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. When fish flakes it's done.
  4. Serve with lemon wedges.
  5. Note: To reheat this, broil for 8 minutes and it's perfect.

This was good and very easy to make. I followed the recipe except I didn't measure the old bay I just spinkled it on. My fish was thick so I cooked mine five minutes on each side and they were perfect. We all enjoyed this.

This is a quick and delicious way for me to fix the frozen tilapia I keep in my freezer! I just need to remember to thaw the fish before I try to cook it, otherwise it ends up not all the way cooked! But still, very delicious!

I make my Tilapia like this all the time! I was surprised to see someone else posted the recipe. ;o) We love our fish seasoned this way. I felt I should review your recipe since I make mine the same way. I also make my own homemade tartar sauce to go with it. I should post that recipe I guess. Happy Cooking!
