What is it that ya don't like, the process or the seasoning?

I was going to say the same thing. Is there a seasoning mix you just haven't found that you liked? I use Paul Prudhomme's, from his first cookbook. Also, I don't get the pan quite as hot as he mentions in his first cookbook, but more of a medium-high heat. I do use clarified butter as my fat.

Blackened "anything" is actually a very easy thing to make, once you learn how to do it.

BTW, my family just loves when I make Blackened Tilapia. Personally, I prefer a good Tuna steak, Blackened to medium, but I can't afford that these days.

I don't care for blackened fish. Maybe it just isn't a dish you like. There are lots of other ways to fix fish. I like tilapia done in a tomato sauce (Vera Cruz style) or dredged in mashed potato flakes or panko crumbs and sauteed.

I've used Emeril's Essence (Bayou Blast) for blackening too. Seemed to work pretty well. You should be able to find the recipe/ingredient list at foodtv.com.
