Not-so-blackened Tilapia

6-8 Tilapia Filets
2 TBS olive oil
1 lemon, cut in wedges

Blackened Seasoning:
1 TBS garlic powder
1 1/2 TBS onion powder
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. lemon pepper
1 tsp. crushed parsley
1 tsp. crushed oregano
1 tsp. red pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Mix seasonings together. Sprinkle liberally on both sides of fish fillets. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat. Fry fish a couple of minutes each side, turning only once. Fish will flake easily when cooked. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over the top. This is a quick meal, especially if you have the seasoning mixed ahead of time. I served this with Mushrooms & Asparagus, Quick Potatoes, and pineapple chunks and Michael loved it.
