Blackened Fish

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by AniSarit

If you like red snapper, then use it here - I think it's fabulous. The spice rub can be used on anything - it's the best I've ever tasted! I make 3 fillets for 2 people because it's so good!

Delicious and reminds me of the cutest riddle: Q: What's the difference between Cajun zoos and other zoos? A: In front of each exhibit, other zoos have a plaque with the name of the animals, its habitat, etc. Cajun zoos have a plaque with the name of the animal---and its recipe. (It's a riddle...just a riddle.)
