You're likely to have most of these spices in your cupboard, making this tilapia recipe super simple and tasty. Do not underestimate serving the tilapia atop the white bread. It gets quite tasty soaking up all the Cajun-spiced juices!
i loved it....also tried it with some hake fillets and adjusted the times......quick easy and very tasty..... - 10 May 2015
I think the "recipe" for the secret hobo spices was actually the ingredient label from a bottle of Astor Cajun Seasoning! (Just kidding!) But it is the exact same ingredients in case someone wants to make this and not buy all the spices. In their recipe though, they dip the fillets in melted butter, coat with the seasoning, and blacken in a hot iron skillet (without the oil or white bread). Either way it's very good. I served mine over a bed of brown rice made with chicken stock instead of water and added sautaed onions & mushrooms and frozen green peas. When served together it balances out the spiceness of the cajun seasonings perfectly! - 19 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Hmmm... and why were you picking the pockets of a sleeping hobo? That's sinking a little low, don'tcha think? If you roll him again, tell him we enjoyed his recipe. Didn't use the bread as I'm gluten intolerant, but the fish was very good. - 06 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
