So, I'd like to start working on a Blackened Tilapia dish...anybody out there have hints or tricks?
Anybody have a good blackened seasoning mix, or do I need to ask that in the recipe section?
I've done it a couple of times and have seen/read so many different ways of doing it. I think you need to dredge the fish in melted butter then coat in a spice mix including paprika, salt, cayenne, onion and garlic powder. Rub melted butter on a red hot cast iron skillet with a paper towel then toss on the fish. Only a minute or two on each side, stand back and avoid breathing the fumes. May want to use a metal spatula for this one.
Good luck, looking forward to the qview.
sounds great, thanks!
Haven't tried butter dredge, but it sounds right up my alley :)
My spice mix is pretty similar to what you list (though I think I threw in some oregano)...but I think I used too much smoked paprika last time--I'll experiment on ratios unless anybody has a tried and true recipe...
alblancher, this sounds like it might work well with my LA redneck turkey frier and cast iron skillet set up I've been working on ;)
