a little fishy

I have never been a big fan of seafood.  In fact, a few years ago I would not put anything in my mouth that had once lived in the water.  And then I met Justin.  He loves seafood and fish.  So I’m branching out.  I’ll eat some fish and a little shrimp here and there now.  Maybe even some seafood gumbo!

Anyway, here is a great recipe for tilapia.  I love it because with all the seasonings, you don’t taste any fishy flavor!

Blackened Cumin Cayenne Tilapia

  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 4  (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 2  teaspoons  ground cumin
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray

Preheat broiler. Rub oil evenly over fish. Combine cumin, salt, garlic powder, and peppers; sprinkle over fish. Arrange fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or desired degree of doneness.

Easy peasy!  And so fast.  10 minutes tops!  Oh, and it’s healthy… which is rare around this house. Ha!

Tonight we did sweet potatoes and corn with it.  Hubby said it was one of the best meals I’ve cooked so far!  Pretty impressive :)

**I got this recipe from myrecipes.com here**
