Pan-Seared Tilapia

Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: about 20 minutes

Have a great dinner ready faster than you can order out or go through a drive-thru! Our Char Crust® Amazin’ Cajun Dry Rub Seasoning makes it easy!

Ingredients:
Tilapia fillets — about 6 oz per person
Char Crust® Amazin’ Cajun Dry Rub Seasoning — about 1/2 Tbsp per fillet
A little oil, canola is good
A little butter (optional), at room temperature

Heat a cast iron pan on the stove until very hot. Season one side of the fish with Char Crust® Amazin’ Cajun Dry Rub Seasoning, generously covering the surface. Drizzle a little oil all over the seasonings, using your fingers to rub in and distribute evenly. Seasonings will look moist and darken a bit. Place the fish, seasoned side down, into the pan. It should sizzle immediately, and you may get some smoke. Cook a few minutes until just cooked through. Transfer to plate with seasoned side up and place pat of butter on top.

Option:
We actually prefer this recipe with catfish, but tilapia seems to have more fans.
