Serves/Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 (about 6 ounces each) red snapper fillets not more than 3/4 inch thick
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt, optional
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 pound butter (1 stick)
How to cook Blackened Red Snapper Fillets:
  • Mix all the dry ingredients thoroughly to form the blackening mix.
  • Rub fillets with the olive oil and dust with the blackening mix.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet to nearly red hot.
  • Drop one-half of the stick of butter into the pan. Immediately place the red snapper fillets in the pan and cook for no more than 2 minutes per side.
  • Add additional butter after turning if needed.

Note:

It is highly recommended to cook blackened fish outside because of the amount of smoke that is generated.

Hint:

If desired, use redfish, pompano, tilefish, or snapper, instead of red snapper. It is highly recommended to cook blackened fish outside because of the amount of smoke that is generated.

Comments:

*Dirty Rice is a traditional Cajun dish made from white rice which gets a "dirty" color from being cooked with small pieces of chicken liver or giblets, green bell pepper, celery, onion and spices cayenne and black pepper. Parsley and/or chopped green onions are common garnishes. Dirty Rice is most common in the Cajun regions of southern Louisiana and Mississippi; however, it can also be found in other areas of the American South. In some southern regions, it is also called Dirty Dressing.
