2 tilapia fillets, room temperature
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons tartar sauce
2 slices tomato
4 teaspoons Blackening Spice (recipe follows)
Blackening Spice Ingredients:
2 heaping tablespoons paprika

½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons black pepper

4. Place whole scallions on grill and cook until tender. Remove from grill and cut into strips.
