Directions

  1. Place 1 tsp. each of blackened seasoning, lemon pepper, garlic powder, gumbo file, cayenne pepper and Cajun gumbo seasoning mix in a bowl; mix.
  2. Season the tilapia by rubbing the seasoning mixture on both sides of the fillets.
  3. Melt 1 stick of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place tilapia in the pan; cook first side. Continue to monitor this pan and turn fish once first side is browned.
  4. Meanwhile, melt remaining stick of butter in second large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped garlic, green onions, mushrooms, cream of celery soup, cream cheese and heavy cream; stir gently to ensure a well-blended sauce.
  5. Once fish is browned on both sides, lower the heat on the pan to keep the fish warm, but not overcooked.
  6. To the cream cheese sauce, add 1 tsp. each of blackened seasoning, cayenne pepper, gumbo seasoning mix and parsley; mix well. Add the shrimp, stirring until the shrimp turns bright pink. Add mozzarella; stir until sauce is well blended.
  7. Place tilapia on a serving platter. Top the tilapia with the creamy sauce. Place 2 tsp. of parsley flakes across the dish for garnish. Enjoy!

We make this quite often and absolutely love it. We find that it also works with chicken on a bed of rice. Delicious.
