Sea & Surf with Blackend Shrimp and Tilapia

At a lot of restaurants, if you get a seafood platter, you often end up with a huge plate full of battered, fried food.  Now, I'm not saying I don't LOVE a good plate of fried sea food, BUT I'm trying to be healthier, AND this homemade sea & surf dinner is so yummy, you won't miss all that battered up food.

11 oz. peeled, deveined cocktail shrimp
4 tilapia fillets
4 Tbsp. butter, divided (I use Promise)

For Blackened Seasoning you'll need:
1 small, close-able container or ziplock bag
2 tsp. ground paprika
4 tsp. dried thyme
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. ground cayenne pepper, or to your taste
1 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
For the seasoning, put all of the spices into the ziplock back and mix well. 

In a medium skillet, melt 2 Tbsp. butter and saute shrimp, giving a really nice coat of seasoning.  Saute until shrimp is heated through, adding seasoning to taste (~5-8 minutes).  You can also grill your shrimp on kebabs.  Just coat your shrimp in non-stick cooking spray, and grill.

Lay fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Melt 2 Tbsp. of butter and brush or spoon onto the fillets.  Coat each fillet with seasoning and bake at 400 for ~20-30 minutes, depending on your oven.

Serve with your favorite veggies and enjoy! 
*The bread is just French bread with shredded Mozzarella, toasted in a toaster oven. =)
