Cooking Time:  20 Minutes

Difficulty:  Extremely easy

Are looking for a quick and easy flavorful family-friendly meal perfect for those busy nights? Look no further, with only three ingredients; a mouth-watering Cajun-inspired dinner is 25 minutes away. 

You know this recipe is good when your child says, "Mom, we should have fish for dinner more often."  Did he really just say that?  

The secret to this savory dish is our newest addition, Cherchies® Cajun Seasoning, a rich blend of peppers, garlic, paprika, onion and other delicious spices. This mix is divine in eggs, casseroles, and stews, as a dip, or sprinkled on meat and seafood for that Cajun flair.

For this savory recipe, we used Tilapia, but any seafood would suffice.  In continuing with the Cajun theme, we sprinkled some Cajun Seasoning on store-bought tater tots, whipped up a batch of our Cajun Cornbread Recipe, baked everything at the same time, added a crisp green salad, and voila, dinner was ready in 25 minutes.

So next time you have a hankering for Cajun, spice up your dinner routine and savor the bold flavors of Louisiana with this delicious fish recipe featuring our new, Cherchies® Cajun Seasoning.  Your family will thank you, and may even ask for "fish more often." ;)

We would love to hear what you think about our new seasoning blend.  Thank you for stopping by!



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Drizzle a baking pan with a little olive oil, just enough to prevent the fish from sticking to the bottom.  Place the fish in the baking pan and drizzle the fish with about 1 teaspoon (tsp) per filet.  

Sprinkle each fillet with a generous amount of Cherchies® Cajun Seasoning, to taste.  The more you add, the bolder it will be.  If using tater tots on the side, in a separate pan, sprinkle the tots with some of the seasoning blend, again to taste.  You can also whip up a batch of Cajun Cornbread Recipe to accompany the fish.

Bake fish (and tater tots and cornbread) in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Fish should flake easily with a fork when it is done.  Serve with lemon wedges (optional)!  Enjoy!
