Memphis BBQ Pit Rub Baked Tilapia

I'm back with my Soul Food Sunday posts.  I kind of got off track being down at my mom's in August.  Then being a bridesmaids in my cousin and friend's wedding in September.  But today I wanted to share a new recipe I created.  It's different and really easy to make.

I'm stoked because I get to share my Memphis BBQ Pit Rub Baked Tilapia recipe with you all.  I know some of you are giving the computer screen a crazy look like WTH?!  You don't really see too many recipes that combine bbq and seafood.  However, I love tilapia and I'm always trying to find new ways to season and cook it for my family.  So, I was experimenting with some goodies GrillMates had sent me a while back.

The results was something very yummy.  I hope that you'll try it and like it.  The best part is that is only requires four ingredients and even then one of those is optional.  The fish goes great with white or wild rice and veggies.

Season tilapia with Memphis Pit BBQ Rub on both sides.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Pour about 1/4 cup of water into a baking dish, then add tilapia.

Cover with foil and bake for 10-15 mins or until done.

Hope you enjoy the recipe!!


  1. Okay. So this post is making me hungry. LOL. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I get tired of cooking the same thing over and over again so recipes help me to switch it up sometimes.

    1. LOL. I know the feeling about not wanting to cook the same things a million times. I'm always on Pinterest or the blogs looking for new recipes to try. And sometimes I just like to experiment and mix flavors that I know I like together.

  2. Picked up some tilapia fillets today. Will have to give this a try.

  3. Very nice and informative blog posting. Among all the fish, tilapia fish is Awesome! Tilapia fish farming is very profitable and easy. I like this fish very much for it's unique taste and nutritional value.
