    I made this last night for dinner, and my husband LOVED it--he was still talking about it this morning! I served it with brown rice and black beans, and used lime wedges instead of lemon (limes are cheaper, haha!). Thanks for posting this recipe--it's awesome!

    I love blackened Redfish and chicken. I also love Tilapia although I have never blackened it. I think it would be a perfect fish to blacken and I can't wait to try it. Thanks.
