Spicy Cajun Tilapia

I say again I do not like fish. I am trying really hard to like it. I am learning if I can not taste the fishy taste then I am good to go. This fish floored me! So amazingly good! If you are or are not a fish eater you will love this dish!

Fish will cook quickly. About 2-3 minutes per side or until fork tender. I like mine a bit crispy on the outside. So I turn the heat up and let it cook for 30 sec – 1 minute to get a bit crispy.
This is so good!
Enjoy!
