Inspiration came from here. But a little less pricey. Halibut T-Bones are also a little hard to find in Minnesota.  And as much as I love Tilapia, it can always use a little more flavor…speaking of tilapia, I’m hoping Brian will share his tilapia and rice recipe via guest blog….???

Caramelized Onions: I usually use white, but had red so I went with it! Slice onion and saute in 1 Tbsp olive oil until golden brown. Pour 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar and stir until all liquid has evaporated. Set aside.

Blackened Tilapia: sprinkle Joe’s (a cajun seasoning) liberally on both sides of tilapia to coat (do not be concerned with sodium ;) because it is not listed on the bottle). Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in onion pan until very hot and cook until first side is black, flip over and heat until fish is done.

Cajun Coleslaw: With extra napa cabbage leftover from this, I searched my cupboards for some inspiration. I came across my New Orleans stash and found some sort of spicy, cajun, garlic sauce. Tossed it with the cabbage and pretended it was my intention the entire time. :) I probably wouldn’t do it again but had to improvise because I forgot a vegetable for this meal – the horror!

The taster was actually impressed with this meal I think and although the pictures don’t do it justice it turned out pretty well (hoping for a new camera for Christmas!! ;) sorry for the poor quality! ) We will be “blackening” again soon!

    I love blackened fish! Totally going to try to make this.

    We had fish last night so I might have to wait until next week to try out this dish. Sounds great.

    That fish looks delicious! I’m always intimidated to cook fish… I don’t know why?

    Your recipe looks great!

    What a fantastic, healthy take on a New Orlean’s inspired type of dish! I loooove Talapia. It’s the meatiest tasting fish in my opinion. Also, anything involving caramelized onions is a treat in my book.

    I need to make tilapia more often. This looks great! I especially like that coleslaw. Side dishes have been a challenge for me lately. Glad to have these ideas!
