Beautifully blackened fish recipe that will rock your socks! No no, it’s not burnt. The char is amazingly flavorful; seasoned with a quick homemade blend of Cajun spices, you can make this on the outdoor grill or right in your kitchen. Heads up if you’re going to cook this inside, there will be quite a bit of smoke so dig out that tower fan from your basement!
Alright, it’s FINALLY warm enough to pull out the barbecue! Well, for our friends and family anyway because we don’t have one (condo-living, boo). The positive is that you can successfully make this delicious blackened fish recipe like I did. It is best to use an heavy cast iron skillet to achieve the best crust. If you haven’t got one, any thick bottomed skillet should do the trick. As for the fish, we happened to have some basa filets but you can use any fish you have. Snapper, cod, even salmon would work just fine.
I served mine with some asparagus and cauliflower puree. In the attempt to make good use of my Christmas present, I have been experimenting with a lot of purees and this cauliflower one turned out incredible! Recipe coming soon, I swear! You can serve anything with this blackened fish though, it is that good! Enjoy!
