"Terrific taste. I usually apply the seasonings directly on the fish but this recipe's method of adding the seasonings to the melted butter with olive oil worked out great. After I removed the cooked fish, I had some extra 'sauce' in the pan so I grilled a piece of bread in the sauce. Yum!"
"This was very good. I used a little less cajun seasoning because my boyfriend doesn't like spicy food. I also didnt have onion flakes so I minced some fresh onion"
"i hesitate to write reviews when i don't follow the recipe to a T but still this was good. I also used old bay instead of cajun seasoning as that's what i have on hand. this was great and simple because it uses what you already have around. i may even try this with fresh ingredients. i can imagine it would be even better."
"Wow, this was unbelievably good. I served it with Field Peas and Corn. It was so simple and easy and yet one of the best fish recipes I have had in a long time. Thanks"
"My entire family really enjoyed this recipe. I'm not too big on spicy foods but this was just spicy enough that I liked it but not too spicy that my mouth was on fire. My husband and son agreed that this was their new favorite fish recipe. My 18 month-old also ate a bunch of it. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used the Tony Chachere's brand Creole seasoning since I didn't have any Cajun seasoning on hand (and we ALWAYS have Tony's in the fridge) and I wound up adding about 1/4 tsp lemon pepper seasoning to the dry mix. I cooked six pieces of fish in my large electric skillet at 350 for three minutes per side and it came out perfect. The edges even got a little crispy and delicious. I served it over jambalaya (prepared with pinto beans and corn) and squeezed a little bit of lemon juice on it before I served it. The jambalaya took longer to cook than it took me to thaw, prep and cook the fish! Thank you for posting such a quick and delicious recipe. I will absolutely make this again and again."
"I mixed all the seasonings together and applied to the tilapia then browned in a pan. It was perfect! We don't like the taste of fish and this covered up that fishy taste. Will be making this one again. I even left off the butter and it was still delicious. (Trying to cut down on fat). Thanks for finding a way for us to eat more fish!!!!"
"This is fantastic! Like someone else I used Old Bay seasoning for the cajun seasoning, and it was very tasty. I added some boiled baby potatoes to the pan with the spice and cooked them for a few minutes before taking them out and adding the fish. It was nice for that too, and really tied to meal together. I'll be using this again for chicken too. Can't recommend it highly enough. Well deserves all the stars!"
"This is the best tilapia recipe I've tried, and I've tried a few. It's EASY, uses the stuff you have, and even if you don't have it all, use as much as you can and it still comes out delicious. Love it"
"I have made this three times now and it is absolutely delicious! Tilapia can be very boring as it does not have much fat however the mixture of spices, oil and butter really make it tasty! I used a basil paste instead of chopping the basil which helped with the flavor. I didn't measure the spices; more just added to taste."
"This was absolutely delicious! I cooked exactly as instructed and wouldn't change a thing. It was perfect!! It's been added to my cookbook and I will, without a doubt, be making it again."
"Yum! Made it with actual lemon juice and some pepper because I didn't have lemon pepper, but it was still so good. Thanks a ton!"
"I did not have all the ingredients for this recipe so I used fresh onion, old bay seasoning, lemon pepper,and crushed red pepper. Served with a side of white rice. My husband loved it!"
"Best tilapia recipe I've tried so far. Will definitely make again as written."
"I made this today and with a few changes based on what I had on hand my whole family loved it! I used Emril's instead of cajun, was out of lemon pepper so I just added pepper and sprinkled on a little lemon juice on the fish before it was cooked, and I was out of the dried parsley so I just left it out. I loved how quick and easy this was to put together. Thanks so much for posting I'm sure I'll make this again and again!"
"Excellent recipe! It's firmly in my, go-to-for-a-fast-(awesome)meal book!"
"I made this for a low carb dinner tonight & really enjoyed it. I may decrease the cajun seasoning a tad bit next time but other than that, it was great as is. Thx for sharing."
"I loved this. I made it as directed but did not use butter and added a touch more olive oil. Healthy and delicious!"
"Good flavor! Loved it!"
"This was EXCELLENT!! I followed the recipe exactly, and the tilapia turned out perfect - light and flaky with just the right flavor. This will become a regular part of our menu selections!"
