This recipe is so easy; you can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes. I was in the mood for some Cajun style broiled fish. We had some Tilapia fillets in the freezer that my wife had picked up while shopping, so I took them out to thaw for dinner.
First I have to tell you, my favorite fish fillet for this recipe is fresh Walleye that I usually get from my friend George who is an avid fisherman.
I haven’t seen George in a while and didn’t have any Walleye left in the freezer so I used the Tilapia. You can use your favorite fish with this recipe.
Here is how I prepared the fish:
First I lined a cookie sheet with tin foil, sprayed it with non stick spray, and placed the fish about 5 inches apart.
Then I melted a ½ stick of butter in the microwave. (Another use for my microwave), and poured the butter over the fillets.
I seasoned each fillet with a healthy dose of McCormick Cajun seasoning, and then placed three slices of fresh lemon in between the fish.
Set the broiler on hi and broil for about 5 to 6 minutes per side, seasoning again after you turn it over. The time per side may vary based on the thickness of the fillets.
The reason I used a cookie sheet and tin foil is that I wanted these to broil and soak in the butter and lemon. I would have lost a lot of the flavor using a regular broiler pan, as it would have dripped away.
This is a quick, easy and delicious meal; serve it up with your favorite vegetable, rice or French fries if you must.
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
