      Delicious, but a little spicy for me. We grilled it using a cast iron skillet. It was simple to make, but next time, I will decrease the amount of cayenne pepper.

      Being from Louisiana we love blackened fish and this recipe was excellent. Flavor and texture was perfect. Other than using regular olive oil, made exactly as written.
