A delectable recipe for sea bass fillets. 'Blackened' fish and sometimes chicken is a hallmark of Cajun cuisine. A mixture of spices and butter coats the fish, which is then pan fried at high heat on, traditionally, a cast iron frying pan.
You could also use salmon or red snapper fillets for this recipe.
This recipe was fabulous! I cooked it on the grill, instead of in a skillet and served it on a bed of linguine in a garlic butter sauce. The subtlty of the linguine balanced well with the boldness of the snapper. - 01 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have been looking for a seasoning mix to use for blackened fish and chicken. This was really easy and the snapper was great! I also put the spice mix in my steamed cauliflower and it was wonderful, too. I highly recommend this recipe. - 08 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was pretty good. I used it on fresh Tilapia fillets since I couldn't find red snapper. Using a cast iron skillet works great. - 07 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
