Category: Fish

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Fish fillets; 1/2 to 3/4"
  • -thick
  • 3/4 c Butter
  • 1 tb Paprika
  • 3/4 ts Cayenne pepper
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Black pepper
  • 1/2 ts White pepper
  • 1 ts Onion powder
  • 1 ts Garlic powder
  • 1/2 ts Dried thyme
  • 1/2 ts Dried oregano
  • 1 ds Cumin


1. Mix dry ingredients on large plate.

2. Melt butter in heavy skillet (do not use lightweight or non-stick
skillet). Pour off all but 3 tablespoons into 9 x 12 x 1 pan.

3. TURN ON HOOD VENT and turn heat to high.

4. Dip each fillet in melted butter (in the 9 x 12 pan) and then dip in the
dry ingredients, patting the fillets by hand.

5. Cook fish on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, being careful when turning
them over. The fish will look charred "blackened" and there may be
some smoke, but not an excessive amount. The blackening forms a spicy,
crunchy coating, sealing in moisture and flavor.

NOTES : Use any type of fish you prefer swordfish, redfish, whitefish,
tuna, etc.
