Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 convection. Combine 3 T paprika, 1 t salt, 1 T onion powder,1 t black pepper, 1/2 to 1 t cayenne pepper, 1 t dry thyme, 1 t dry oregano and 1/2 t garlic powder.
Line a sheet pan with foil and add 2 T olive oil. Brush it over the foil in any area that will have fish.
Rinse and pat dry 1 pound of tilapia. Brush with olive oil. Cover the fillets with the spices and rub it in (both sides).
Place on the oiled pan and give a light spray of PAM. Place in the preheated oven.
If you want a homemade tarter sauce, combine 1/3 cup mayo, 2 t lemon juice, 1 t sweet pickle relish and 1/4 t onion powder. Mix well.
Cook until nicely brown and flaky. This is about 10-11 minutes for big fillets and a minute or two less for small to medium fillets.
