Serves: 6
I use the same seasoning with boneless chicken breasts as well.
  • 3/4 lb butter, melted in a skillet
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • 2-1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground red pepper
  • 3/4 tsp white pepper
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 6 fish fillets
  1. Heat a cast iron skillet over a high heat until it is VERY hot.
  2. Combine the dry spices together in a bowl.
  3. Dip each fillet in melted butter and then sprinkle the seasoning mixture over both sides.
  4. Put the fillets in the skillet and pour in the remaining butter.
  5. Cook the fish until the underside begins to char or blacken, then turn and cook the other side.
  6. This will cook quickly and creates a lot of smoke.
