  • 2 lbs fish fillets
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • 1 dash cumin



Step 1

Mix dry ingredients on large plate. Melt butter in heavy skillet (do not use lightweight or non-stick skillet). Pour off all but 3 tbsp into 9" x 12" x 1" pan. Turn over hood fan. Dip each fillet in melted butter and then dip in the dry ingredients, patting the fillets by hand. Cook fish on each side for 2 - 3 minutes. The fish will look charred “blackened” and there may be some smoke. The blackening forms a spicy, crunchy coating, sealing in moisture and flavour.
