Blackened Tilapia With Garlic Lime Butter

Truth be told, the flavored butter here is the icing on the cake in this blackened tilapia recipe; if you have a great fresh piece of fish, just coat it with a bit of blackening spice, follow the cooking instructions, and maybe squeeze a lemon over the top.

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
2
tbsp butter, softened at room temperature
2
tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2
cloves garlic, finely minced
1
tsp lime zest, plus juice of 1 lime
1
tbsp canola oil
4
tilapia fillets (6 oz each)
1
tbsp Magic Blackening Rub
Directions
1.
Combine the butter, cilantro, garlic, lime zest, and lime juice in a small mixing bowl and stir to thoroughly blend. Set aside.
2.
Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet or sauté pan over high heat. Rub the tilapia all over with the blackening rub.
3.
When the oil in the pan lightly smokes, add the fish and cook, undisturbed, for 3 to 4 minutes on the first side, until the spice rub becomes dark and crusty.
4.
Flip and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes, until the fillets flake with gentle pressure from your finger.
5.
Transfer the fish to 4 serving plates and immediately top each with a bit of the flavored butter.
