Pan Seared Cajun Tilapia

Yesterday was my first official day of recommitting myself to losing weight.  I guess I can't complain since I lost 4.4 lbs for my first day! Yay! I know it is mainly water weight, but I am happy nonetheless. This is only the beginning of my weight loss journey. There will be some ups and downs but with the support and help from all of you guys, I know reaching my goal weight will be possible.

 Now for the yummy recipe I tried this evening! I love Tilapia and this recipe is going right up there with my other favorite recipes. It is bursting with lots of flavor and I will continue to make it again and again. Hubby even liked it so that is a bonus! I served it on a bed of romaine lettuce, but you could serve it with your favorite veggies. Enjoy!

Pan Seared Cajun Tilapia

18 oz raw tilapia (2 Leanest Lean)
2 tbsp light butter (2 Healthy Fats) 
2 tsp olive oil (2 Healthy Fats)
1/2 tsp dried oregano (1/2 Condiment)
1 tsp Cajun seasoning (4 Condiments)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1/2 Condiment)
1/2 tsp parsley flakes (1/6 Condiment)
1/4 tsp lemon pepper (1/2 Condiment)

Sprinkle seasonings over tilapia.
Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the fish and adjust the heat to medium high. The fish will cook quickly. Brown each side, cooking approximately 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
