Blackened Snapper with Fresh Veggie Salad Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2 servings


  •     For Blackened Fish:
  • 2 any snapper fillets (I used mutton snapper), about 6-8 ounces each
  • 1 tablespoon Blackened Redfish Magic Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon grape seed or coconut oil to blacken fish
  • For Fresh Veggie Salad:
  • Any lettuce, small pieces
  • Handful of celery leaves
  • 1 rib celery, sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1 small Haas avocado, chopped (just before serving) plus a few slices to serve
  • For Basil-Lime Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced (chiffonade) fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to cook Blackened Snapper with Fresh Veggie Salad:
  • Rinse the fish fillets under running cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Lightly dust each side with the Redfish Magic.
  • Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.
  • Heat a grill on High. Place a heavy skillet on the grill to heat up.
  • Once hot, add grape seed or coconut oil to pan and place fillets into the pan.
  • Allow the first side to get a good sear, approximately 2 minutes. Once brown, turn over and cook another 2-3 minutes (the fish tends to be thick).
  • Removed them to a platter and covered them with foil to finish cooking, while maintaining juiciness.
  • Combine the salad ingredients with the dressing; place onto serving plate and top with the blackened snapper. Garnish with extra avocado slices.
  •     Enjoy!
