"I 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."

Preparation

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.

Works great on boneless pork chops too! Blackened, not burnt at all, still juicy inside. photo by swibirun swibirun

Very good! I used this rub on Cod. Very yummy, but a tad bit too spicy.

Very 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!

Way too salty! But good and spicy. Will try again using only 1 tsp of salt.

Used this rub on boneless pork chops. Did them on a cast iron griddle over rocket hot lump coals and they came out perfectly. The crust flavor was intense but when thinly sliced, the pork chop was perfectly balanced. Will definitely make again.
