I am feeling a bit spicy and found some fish in the freezer, and what could be better than a spicy, easy to make, fish dinner?

4 Tilapia filets
2 TBS butter
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Hungarian paprika
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1 tsp. each of onion and garlic powders
1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves

Wash the fish and dry with paper towel. Set aside. Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the olive oil until blended. Set aside.

Gather your spices

In a bowl mix the remaining ingredients until combined.

Spice Mixture

Brush the fish with the butter mixture and then dredge in the spice mix covering evenly.

Lay the fish on a foil lined baking sheet. You will have some of the butter mixture left over and will be using this shortly.

Now take out your cast iron pan and heat it up until a drop of water sizzles. Pour 1/2 the remaining butter mixture over the fish,

and place this side down in the cast iron pan. Cook this over high heat until the fish is browned. Pour the remaining butter mixture on the side of the fish that is facing up in the pan and turn the fish.

The fish has been flipped!

Cook until the fish is browned and begins to flake. Total cooking time is approximately 10 minutes.

I like to serve this with fresh broccoli mixed with fresh carrots and Jasmine rice.

Dinner is served!

Serve this with a Pinot Grigio!
