This was very good. I used a little less cajun seasoning because my boyfriend doesn't like spicy food. I also didnt have onion flakes so I minced some fresh onion
i hesitate to write reviews when i don't follow the recipe to a T but still this was good. I also used old bay instead of cajun seasoning as that's what i have on hand. this was great and simple because it uses what you already have around. i may even try this with fresh ingredients. i can imagine it would be even better.
Terrific taste. I usually apply the seasonings directly on the fish but this recipe's method of adding the seasonings to the melted butter with olive oil worked out great. After I removed the cooked fish, I had some extra 'sauce' in the pan so I grilled a piece of bread in the sauce. Yum!
