Recently Jamie told me about a recipe she tried and loved…a blackened tilapia sandwich with cilantro lime mayonnaise. Everything about it sounded great to me so of course I had to try it.
The recipe originally came from Paula Deen, but really all I followed from her recipe was the Cilantro Mayonnaise. For the blacknening seasoning I instead used Chef Paul Prudhomme Blackened Redfish Magic. I discovered this seasoning last year in St. Thomas of all places, when I ordered the best tasting blackened fish sandwich. I love this stuff.
Recipe adapted from Paula Deen
4 tilapia filets (I used frozen tilapia from Costco)
Blackened Redfish Magic seasoning
non stick spray
fresh kaiser rolls
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Sprinkle seasoning liberally (or lightly, based on your taste) on each tilapia filet. Place each piece of fish into hot pan sprayed with non stick spray. Cook fish until flaky, approximately 3-4 minutes on each side.
For mayonnaise, combine all ingredients in small bowl. Cover and chill.
Serve tilapia on kaiser rolls with cilantro lime mayonnaise and your favorite side dish!
6-8 medium red potatoes, sliced thin
1-2 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper
In a medium bowl, gently toss potatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper. Place potato slices on baking/cooling rack placed into a cookie sheet**. Bake in 425 degree oven for approximately 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
**using a baking/cooling rack placed into a cookie sheet is important for air baking and keeping both sides of potato slices crisp**
