Ingredients

1 Bag (1lb) Tilapia Loins, thawed (or any firm white fish)

Butter Flavored Cooking Spray

1 tsp Canola Oil

Perfect Pinch Cajun Seasoning

Directions

Wash tilapia loins and pat dry with paper towels.  Arrange on plate or pan in single layer.

Spray one side of fish with butter flavored cooking spray to coat. (In traditional blackened fish, the meat is dipped in butter, then in spices, so this was my trade off.)

Sprinkle fish liberally on top of butter flavored spray until fish is completely covered.  Seasoning can also be poured onto a plate, and the fish dredged in it, but I find this way easier.  You can add more or less, depending on the level of spice you want.  Lightly pat the seasoning into the fish, turn, and repeat on other side, spraying first with butter flavored spray.

Heat heavy non-stick or cast iron pan over medium high heat.  When pan is hot, add canola oil, and a couple sprays of butter flavored cooking spray.  Add fish, and cover pan. 

Cook over medium high heat, about 5-7 minutes per side, turning when seasoning is blackened to a nice crust.  When fish has been flipped, if it seems to be cooking too quickly, you can lower heat slightly and cover again for a minute or two, depending on the thickness of your fish.

When fish feels firm to the touch, remove from heat and serve immediately.
