    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a restaurant-quality fish recipe, I have also used this recipe with grouper. If you are using unsalted butter for this recipe then use 1 teaspoon kosher salt instead of 1/2 teaspoon. The success of the blackening technique depends on your fish being very cold and having a very hot skillet, use a large cast-iron skillet for this recipe.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a saucepan melt butter over low heat.
    2. 2
      Stir in the lemon juice, thyme, basil, black pepper and kosher salt; cook over low heat for 8-10 minutes, then pour into a heat-proof shallow dish (I use my 11 x 7-inch pyrex baking dish for this).
    3. 3
      Cool the butter mixture for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
    4. 4
      Dip the fish fillets into the butter mixture coating thoroughly.
    5. 5
      Place the fillets on a platter and chill at least 1-1/2 hours.
    6. 6
      Set aside the remaining butter mixture.
    7. 7
      heat a large cast-iron frypan over high heat (until a drop of water sizzles in the pan, the pan must be hot!).
    8. 8
      Add in two very cold fillets and cook 2 minutes on each side or until the fish flakes, remove to a platter and keep warm.
    9. 9
      Repeat with the remaining fillets.
    10. 10
      Reduce the heat, then add in the remaining butter mixture into the skillet; stir and heat.
    11. 11
      Drizzle the butter mixture over the fillets.
    12. 12
      Serve with lemon wedges.

      This was abosolutly DELICIOUS! Even my non-fish-eating daughter liked it!! I had 2 snapper fillets so I halved the recipe. I made it exatly as directed except my fillets were on the thick side so they took longer than 2 minutes per side.I would say probably twice that long. Covering the pan with foil sped things up & minimized the splatters. I can't wait to try it with grouper! Thanks for sharing!!
