Cajun Seasoned Tilapia

Spicy and flavorful Cajun seasoned Tilapia is a perfect seafood dinner option that’s easy to make and full of flavor.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings 1x



4 to 6 tilapia fillets, fresh or frozen
cooking spray or 1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
Dash of black pepper


Preheat oven to 400°.
Lightly grease a large shallow baking dish.
Combine the seasonings in a gallon sized freezer bag.
Place one tilapia in the freezer bag and shake until fully coated.
If using frozen tilapia fillets, dip the tilapia in water to moisten before placing in the seasoning bag.
Arrange the seasoned fish fillets on the prepared baking pan.
Brush the fillets with melted butter or spray with cooking spray.
Bake the fish fillets for 15 to 20 minutes in preheated oven, or until fish is cooked through.
Fish will flake easily with a fork when removed.


If cooking frozen tilapia, remember to thaw before seasoning.
Adding fresh herbs before serving adds additional flavor.
