Bacon-Wrapped Cajun Fish

This was one of those recipes where I thought to myself “okay, I’ve really outdone myself now.” Despite its appearance, this dish is actually super simple to make. On top of it, not only is it delicious… but its also nutritious! The salty touch of the turkey bacon blends perfectly with the mild taste of whitefish, and everything is rounded out amazingly with a hint of cajun spice. Trust me… you need to try this recipe!

Homemade Cajun Spice (1 Jar)

1/4 cup salt

1/4 cup pepper

1/4 cup cayenne pepper

1/4 cup paprika

1/4 cup garlic powder

2 tablespoons onion powder

2 tablespoons dried oregano

2 tablespoons dried thyme

Thoroughly mix together all ingredients. Store in a jar in a cool, dry place.

Bacon-Wrapped Cajun Fish (Serves 4)

1 lb mild whitefish fillets such as tilapia (4 fillets)

8 turkey bacon slices

Homemade cajun spice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay the fish fillets flat, and sprinkle with homemade cajun spice to taste. Lay 2 turkey bacon slices flat, and place a fish fillet (seasoned side down) on top. Beginning at the end, roll up the bacon and fish. Secure with toothpicks, repeating with the rest of the bacon and fish. In a lightly oiled pan over very high heat, sear the the bacon-wrapped fish fillets for roughly 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan and place on a foil-lined baking sheet; bake for 8-10 minutes or until both bacon and fish are thoroughly cooked.
