Traditionally Blackened fish is cooked outside in a cast iron skillet. It makes a lot of smoke. I'm cooking my tilapia inside on my stove top.
Fresh Tilapia filets.
I cut it because I'm serving children.
Sea salt, olive oil, creole seasoning (Slap Ya Mama brand), parsley and black pepper.
Season fish. Rub it in good. You can let it marinate for a few minutes.
Mince garlic cloves. My ceramic knife got chipped on a lamb bone. 😠
Melted butter and olive oil with onions and garlic.
Melt butter in skillet with olive oil. Toss in onion, garlic and sauté. Sprinkle in parsley.
Sautéed looking great. You can really smell the garlic in the butter.
I love to watch this step. It's ready for the fish. Uh oh. Baby is crying.
Lower heat. Cover for 10 minutes. Let it steam up in the skillet.
It's finished! The butter and oil makes a great juice.
