Cajun tilapia with compound butter, makes 6 servings

Recipe Ingredients for Tilapia, Cajun

2 lb raw tilapia
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup flour
3 tbsp ICBINB
1 tbsp cajun seasoning
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup parsley

Recipe Directions for Tilapia, Cajun

  1. Wash the tilapia fish fillets and pat dry with a paper towel. Heat the olive oil in a large (at least 12-inch) frying pan over medium heat. Meanwhile mix the flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish.

  2. Dredge the tilapia fillets in the flour mixture to coat lightly. Brush off excess flour. Place the tilapia in the frying pan in a single layer (you will probably have to saute the tilapia in batches) and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook another 2 to 3 minutes until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove from pan and tent with foil until all the tilapia is cooked.

  3. To make the compound butter: With a spatula, mix the softened butter with the Cajun seasoning and lemon juice. Top each tilapia serving with a half-tablespoon of the compound butter. Garnish with the chopped parsley, if desired.
