    Simple and delicious. I’m not a fan of thyme so I only put half a tsp and added 1/4 tsp onion powder

    My girlfriend is on the Keto diet so this was a rather quick and easy meal for dinner, I added some asparagus from the skillet and broccoli.

    It turned out great. Could use a little less salt and had to substitute red pepper flakes for the cayenne pepper, but it was still pretty great! Definitely gonna cook it again.

    Really good, simple meal. Would and have definitely make it again. It's nice that most of the ingredients are things you'd have on hand.

    So easy! I never knew this type of recipe existed! I've been baking blackened tilapia more often since finding this recipe!

    Not the best recipe I've ever tried, but gave it 4 stars because I actually made the tilapia taste like SOMETHING. Will definitely keep using this until I find something better 😁

    Had a last minute change of plans for dinner- luckily we had some frozen tilapia filets in the freezer! These were ready in no time & they were delicious!! Just had to substitute chili powder for the cumin (had run out). It's definitely a keeper :) Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

    AMAZING!!! ... I put pepper flakes instead of the paprika and chilli powder and sage instead of rhyme. SO flavorful! Definitely a keeper.
