@ReadingRomance Day 7 #NaughtyorNice Talapia

"Tilapia fillets are rubbed with a mix of secret spices, then pan fried and served on white bread with a squeeze of lemon juice." This is from All Recipes where I find 99% of my to-make items. (Those recipes I already have, I search for on All Recipes to share!)
3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 pinch garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon kosher salt, or to taste
1 pound tilapia fillets
1 lemon, cut into wedges
4 slices white bread
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  1. In a small bowl or jar with a lid, make the spice blend.
  2. Mix together the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, celery seed and kosher salt.
  3. Coat the fish fillets with the spice mixture, and allow to sit at room temperature for no longer than 30 minutes.
  4. Heat a heavy skillet over high heat.
  5. Add oil, and heat until it is almost smoking.
  6. Place the fillets in the pan, and cook for about 3 minutes per side, or until fish is opaque and can be flaked with a fork.
  7. Remove from the pan, and place onto slices of white bread. Pour pan juices over them and squeeze lemon juice all over.
  8. Do not underestimate the white bread. It gets quite tasty soaking up all the juices.
