Blackened Red Snapper Recipe
Here is a simple, quick, and easy blackened red snapper recipe that you
can whip up in your kitchen in little to no time. If you're never cooked
blackened fish or chicken before, I must warn you that this type of
cooking can create a lot of smoke in your kitchen. Despite all the smoke that's produced when you cook
blackened recipes, it's well worth the time and effort that you'll spend
clearing the smoke from your kitchen. Red snapper is one of my favorites when it comes to blackening fish. I have tried this recipe many times and have always like the results. Give the recipe and try and see for yourself.
Recipe For Blackened-Red Snapper
- 4 red snapper fillets (about 6 ounces each)
- 2 tablespoons butter
Cajun Seasoning Mix (Makes about 1/2 cup)
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1 tablespoons paprika
- 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
- Rinse red snapper fillets with fresh water and pat dry using a paper or kitchen towel.
- In a small bowl, prepare Cajun seasoning by combining and mixing together salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper,
thyme, oregano and ground white pepper.
- Heat large skillet over medium heat until very hot. Next add butter and swirl skillet to coat entire bottom. When butter no longer bubbles, add filets to
skillet and cook for 6 to 8 minutes. Turn fish halfway through cooking. Your blackened red snapper fillet is done when it easily flakes with a fork.
Serve with a side item of choice. I usually serve my fish with freshly boiled pasta and Alfredo sauce.
