    I'm not a big fish eater to start with, but I do like tilapia. I had some in the freezer and decided "why not?" since I was only cooking for myself. I couldn't believe how easy this fish was to prep and cook or how wonderful it tasted! If you like blackened anything(Chicken, fish, or whatever) you will simply love this!I will definitely make this again for the rest of my family because I know they'll love it too.
