Yummy Sandwiches!

I don’t have much to share other than a recipe tonight. We had some amazing fish tonight and I just feel like I have to pass it along. I got fresh tilapia filets from Whole Foods and french hamburger buns from the Publix bakery. We also had homemade chips to compliment them that were to die for. I have already forgotten that we almost burned the house down when the oil got too hot. These sandwiches made that all go away …

Paula Deen’s Blackened Tilapia Sandwich

  • 1/4 cup sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons ground thyme
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder (FYI, we don’t like onion so I didn’t use it.)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 4 (10-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 4 Kaiser buns, split, buttered and toasted (Again, I used french. They were crispy and delicious.


In a shallow dish, combine first 6 ingredients.

Pour melted butter into another shallow dish. Dip fish fillets in melted butter and coat with seasoning mixture.

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cook prepared fish, in batches if necessary, 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

I then made some cilantro lime mustard that we slathered on our toasted buns. French hamburger buns, that is.

Cilantro Lime Mustard

  • 1 cup stone ground mustard
  • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin


Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix together completely. Chill for 1 to 2 hours before serving.
