Cajun Baked Tilapia

I have had a tendency to shy away from posting the super simple recipes on the blog because for the most part there isn't a written recipe that I use.  I just put the things together.

After bemoaning to a friend over the weekend that I haven't made anything exciting because of my quest for healthier eating and losing a few (ok more than a few) pounds she reminded me that not everyone had the inspiration to just throw simple things together or that not everyone knew how to cook.

So while I'm dieting and improving my eating habits, I'll be sharing simple  and quick recipes that are part of my current quest for healthier eating and I hope you give them a try and enjoy!

Today I'm fixing baked fish.  I find that Tilapia is one of my favorites.  It is mild and not overtly "fishy" which lets the seasonings shine and cooks up in a flash.  I typically purchase Tilapia filets frozen so I have it on hand but I have also purchased fresh filets from the supermarket.

Cajun Baked Tilapia
Servings:  2

Ingredients:

2 4 ounce Tilapia filets
1 teaspoon Cajun Spice
Non Stick Spray

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with foil and coat lightly with non-stick spray. This will make clean up a breeze.
Place the filets 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
Sprinkle the top of each filet with 1/2 teaspoon of seasoning (or add more if you prefer to kick up the spice).
Place sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily.


.....and that's What's Cooking at Cathy's ~ Enjoy!

About Me

My photo

My career is in IT.  Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog.  
I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
