To use the Cajun seasoning put oil on fish can be anything Salmon red fish grouper cat fish ect… dust Cajun seasoning on both side heavy sear in cast iron both sides about 1 min both side finish off in oven for a few min. If you can do it out side I get the pan smoker hot it will stink up the house and I do add a little oil to the pan as well.

Also don’t Substitute any other pepper the scotch bonnet may be one of the hottest peppers but it’s also one of the sweetest and when you take the seeds and veins out it’s actually not that hot in a rich fatty mayonnaise.

The grouper looks great.

A little history on blackening...
The "blackened" craze all started about 1980 with chef Paul Prudhomme, owner of K-Paul`s Louisiana Kitchen in New Orleans. He was the first to blacken redfish and it soon became a hit and his signature dish. Since then, about anything imaginable has been blackened.

Blackened grouper is my all time favorite fish sandwich, but I’m in Florida too, and many restaurants say they are giving you grouper, but it’s really tilapia. We Floridians know when we are getting screwed, but the tourists probably don’t have a clue. I don’t say a thing, I just don’t go back to that restaurant. Now your grouper looks fantastic!
