Fish is a huge staple in our house. We purchase tilapia in bulk bags found in the freezer section of a grocery store, each fillet is individually packaged so only have to cook as many as you need. One of the things I love about these fillets is that you can cook it straight from the freezer, no thawing needed! In fact thawing the fish makes it difficult to work with and season because it will fall apart. Above is a picture of the seasoned fillets before they go into the oven!
We cook fish a couple different ways but this is definitely one of our favorites! Even though I use a BBQ rub I would call it more of a Cajun fish because it doesn’t taste like BBQ, it has a spicy kick but nothing that would make you break a sweat. This picture shows the final product!
Tilapia Fillet (s)
Gates Original BBQ Seasoning and Marinate
Lay the frozen fillets in a baking dish (the fish oil will keep it from sticking so there is no need for oil or butter). Generously shake the BBQ seasoning onto the fillets, turn the fillets over and season the other side. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes at 400. Broil for an additional 3 minutes or until the fillets start cracking open.
