    I didn’t like it. Too spicy, too strong flavor

    Delicious and quick to make. I brushed some olive oil on each side before applying the seasoning.

    Substituted chili powder for paprika and curry power for cumin

    This tilapia was the best! As good as a dish ordered from a restaurant it had just enough heat but not enough to be uncomfortable to the pallet. It went perfect with the garlic pasta and garlic broccoli served on the side.

    Delicious! So much flavor. We used 1 tsp of onion salt instead of doing each separately so it wasn't too salty. I also coated each fillet in coconut oil before covering them in the spice mix. Topped it with some lemon to add a little zest. Paired with mashed potatoes and butternut squash. Easy and quick to make! Will be eating again!

    Too much seasoning for me and my husband.

    Absolutely LOVED this!!! Made it for my son (who’s 2 years old) and he couldn’t get enough! It was a tad salty for my taste, maybe because I didn’t have the thyme or onion powder. Next time I’ll reduce the salt amount and see how it turns out. But this is definitely going to be one of my regular go to dishes.
    quick dinner, wasnt bad but nothing to write home about either

    Perfect. Pair with fried potatoes with a similar seasoning and some garlic cloves❤️
    omg i make tilapia once a week and my family said this was by far the best ever. even my 14 year old's friends loved it and they only eat pizza or hot dogs when they come over 😍😍😍

    Really delicious. The combination of spices and limited cooking time made the tllapia taste great.

    Turned out great! I oven baked instead of pan frying and added a squeeze of lemon juice to the top of each fillet.

    Delicious, we added a tsp of paprika instead of a tbsp and will probably add a little less salt next time

    These were so good. I made them last night. My children, my daughter 5 and my twins are 3 yrs old all loved them and they are picky eaters. I will be making these again and again.

    Great! I was out of onion powder and thyme so it was pretty spicy. I'd definitely make again!

    It was delicious! Can't wait to make it again. Looking forward to trying it on the grill this summer.

    My 2 yr old loved this recipe! I didn't use red pepper and I might cook it in butter next time but all of us devoured it.
