    WOW!!!! I thought my tilapia was good but this was restaurant quality for sure. Not only did the house smell delicious when it came in from the grill but our 6 year old said, "This is the most delicious fish ever mommy!" She ate her whole plate and then some. Our tilapia was a little bigger so we found we needed more seasoning but I just did 3 filets with your seasoning and 1 plain. UNBELIEVABLE!!

    I am recommending measuring out the spices and making a couple ziploc bags full to have on hand for next time...there will be one! Thank you for a great meal idea!

    Excellent recipe! Very easy, the kids loved it, my husband loved it, I loved it. Such a rare treat. The flavored were perfectly blended, not too hot. I did use lime juice instead of lemon pepper, only because I didn't have any. 5 stars!!

    I just made this recipe for dinner and it was absolutely delicious! It had a bit of a kick to it so I might adjust the paprika and red pepper. It will def. be added to the dinner rotation--Thanks for the recipe!
