Hey Seafoodies! Today we are delving into a blackened seafood recipe. This technique is a restaurant favorite that is easy to adapt in your home kitchen. The basics of blackening include brushing the seafood with butter, layering on a dry rub of seasoning and then cooking in a hot oven or a sizzling hot pan. Today’s recipe is an oven-baked blackened tilapia!

Tilapia is a great fish to blacken, thanks to its firmness. With about 100 calories in a 4-ounce serving, tilapia is rich in important nutrients, like lean protein, niacin, vitamin B-12, phosphorus and selenium. Plus, this seriously flavorful recipe takes about 20 minutes to prepare, leaving you more time to enjoy the remaining warm summer days.
