    I love blackened fish or chicken, and this was delicious! I seemed to taste the paprika a bit, so I might reduce that a tidge and increase the cayenne....but I like it hot! I also added a little oil in my cast iron skillet while heating. This isn't mentioned in the recipe, but I've never blackened fish without adding a bit of oil. Delicious spice combination!
