Flavor budget-friendly tilapia fillets with Cajun (or Creole) seasoning, dredge in flour and cornmeal, and pan fry for a quick-cooking weeknight meal. 

How to Make It

Do not add more Cajan seasoning than called for in the recipe - it will make the fish too salty.

Have made this several times and we like it alot! Have found that regular unbleached flour works better than self-rising flour. Quick and easy for a snack or a delicious meal.
