Try this Cajun Blackened Spice Mix And Blackened Fish recipe, or contribute your own.
Mix all spices together and store in a tight jar. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in cast iron skillet on medium high heat until very hot, but not quite smoking. Rinse fish fillets and pat dry with paper towel. Rub a little oil on both sides of the fish and sprinkle spice mix on both sides (generously, if you like it hot). Sear the fish in the hot oil for about 1 minute. Flip it and cook the other side. If the fillets are thick, you may need to lower the heat and cover to fully cook the fish. Serve with lemon wedges.
Fergcx1 1m agoLoved this rub. I made a half batch and put in only 1/2 tsp salt which was just the right amount. Only thing I left out was the sage. I used it for tilapia and will definitely continue to make this rub.

dakotarussell 3y agoI used this rub on grilled chicken, after I was no longer able to find a good store-bought blackened season. This is a great recipe. Very spicy (not a bad thing for me, but I'll probably dial it back next time for the kids), but just a bit too salty. I'll use less than listed next time. Otherwise, it's damn near perfect.
ccdbean 3y agoVery yummy! This was an amazing recipe but almost blew up my mouth with its spiciness! But if you like spicy you should definitely add it to your repertoire!
Buchanmi 4y agoFinally - the rub I have been looking for. Perfect!!
Decar48 4y agoWay too salty! But good and spicy. Will try again using only 1 tsp of salt.
