"This recipe is absolutely delicious!!! I did not like fish but I needed to start eating light and well after trying this I'm definitely a fish eater now!! I did squeeze half an orange on the tilapia before I started seasoning. Also a tad but more of each ingredient as I was nervous the recipe would not be enough. Looks like I will be visiting the grocery market tomorrow for some more tilapia!"

"An awesome seasoned recipe for a change. Most I have found are so bland they're not worth the time. (And to the reviewer who found her filet "fishy" - you must have had a spoiled or bad filet as this is not a "fishy" fish at all - generally fish should not smell fishy or they are already going bad). We really enjoy this and often for the last few minutes of baking throw the convection on to crisp up the coating. Works very well but does require some babysitting to avoid burning or over cooking. Pairs well with fresh asparagus too!"

It is found with the spices in a plastic jar like the other spices come in. I have made this before and it is definitely good. I think I will make it this week, in fact."

In fact, my husband loved the taste of the rub so much that he made up a huge batch and has been using it on chicken, pork, etc. The creator of this recipe was right when they said this is "restaurant-quality." I think they could actually sell the spice mix commercially!!"
