John grilled his famous Blackened Tilapia for dinner tonight, and I wanted to share the recipe with you, but he’s a little like the Colonel. Colonel Sanders, that is. He doesn’t like to reveal his blend of herbs and spices, so I’m just guessing on the quantities. I do actually know which spices he used, but only because he left them all out on the counter….
Blackening Spice Rub (you can use this on fish, chicken, or steak)
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Preheat outdoor grill to HIGH. As high as it will go.
Coat thawed fish with olive oil or melted butter. Generously coat fish in the Blackening Spice Rub. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side.
