Blackened Tilapia

I just made this tonight for dinner and was very pleased with the look and flavor. It was great with mashed potatoes! I normally do not like Tilapia as it can have a fishy taste, but with these spices this was quite tasty, not fishy tasting. Yum!

4-6 Tilapia
2 Tbls. Paprika
2 tsp salt
2 tsp lemon pepper
1.5 tsp garlic powder
1.5 tsp ground red pepper
1.5 tsp. dried, crushed basil
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 c. unsalted butter, melted


Heat iron skillet on high 5 minutes. Mix all seasonings in a bowl. Dip fillets in melted butter and coat with seasonings. Place fillets in hot skillet and cook 2 minutes on each side.
