Cajun Blackened Fish is a recipe that is most popular in the United States and comes from the Cuban scene over there. 

Cajun Blackened Fish

It is a simple recipe to make and is best done in a cast iron pan. 

You can have this dish done in less than 10 minutes this way!

Talk about a easy and healthy recipe, eh?

WHAT KIND OF FISH CAN BE USED FOR CAJUN BLACKENED FISH

  • Catfish
  • Redfish
  • Bass
  • Tilapia
  • Snapper

Pan frying the Cajun Blackened Fish

IS BLACKENED FISH HEALTHY

Yes, however if you are on a very low fat diet. You may want to use less butter.

IS BLACKENED FISH SPICY

Not really, the cajun seasoning adds a bit of spice but it really balances out once cooked.

WHAT IS BLACKENED FISH

Blackened fish is a cooking technique for cooking fish such as Catfish or Tilapia by first dipping it in melted butter.

Then the fish is covered on all sides with spices. Which typically consist of  oregano, chili pepper, thyme, garlic powdeR salt, pepper.

You can also find a pre mixed seasoning such as the one you see below to Blacken your fish!

SO WHAT MAKES THE FISH BLACKENED

It is the seasonings of course, because really all you are going to want to do is sear the fish on each side for 3 minutes in butter.

Which results in a blackened look and slightly crisp texture!

WHAT SPICES FOR BLACKENED FISH 

  • 2 tbsp of Chili powder
  • 1 tsp of Cayenne powder
  • 1 tsp of Smoky paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of cumin powder
  • 1 tsp of seasoning salt

Blackened Tilapia Fish Taco Seasonings

I like to serve this fish on a bed of rice along with some black beans and corn. Black beans are often a staple food in cuban culture as well and go real good with this fish. 

If you’re looking for a traditional Cuban Black Bean recipe, you can try my “Cuban Black Bean”  as well.

Basically all your going to need for this recipe is basmati rice, canned black beans, canned or frozen sweet corn, salsa, shredded cheese along with “Fresh Tilapia” and a few seasonings. Oh and some fresh cilantro and lime juice to garnish!

HOW TO MAKE BLACKENED TILAPIA TACOS

  • I would not recommend using frozen fish for this recipe, you are looking for a few fresh fillets here.
  • The fresher the better, which will produce a moist and flaky fish taco.
  • This type of fish can also be served in burritos, tacos, and or over rice with beans.
  • You can also substitute the tilapia for another white fish such as halibut or cod.
  • Then simply season and saute in a cast iron skillet on medium heat till done. 

Other foods that go well with Blackened Fish are:

  • Cabbage Pico De Gallo 
  • Pico De Gallo
  • Cheese
  • Avocados
  • Cilantro 
  • Lime

If you decide to make “cabbage pico de gallo” just make sure you make it a few hours ahead of time.

Check out my two favorite recipes for Pico De Gallo below you will serious love them! 

  1. Pico De Gallo this goes great with these tacos.
  2. Cabbage Pico De Gallo this also goes great with these tacos.

Also don’t forget to squeeze some fresh lime juice over top the fish at the end, this really helps the flavors to pop.

This recipe can feed roughly 2 people, so if it’s just the two of you dining tonight then there certainly are going to enjoy!

If your wanting to feed more people, simply MAKE more by doubling the ingredients!

Your idea is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my seek for something relating to this.

Its a miracle that I am alive today. I encounter HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, six (6) months and twelve (12) day with my calculations, before I meet the great Dr. Balogun. I am Brayan Melody from Fresno California, united state of America and I was affected with herpes virus,.Herpes is a viral infection cause by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blister in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I meet Dr.Balogun online while I was searching for herpes cure I read a testimony about his work. I give a try that now becomes a testimony in my life. I contacted Dr.Balogun on WhatsApp  +2349064881054 or you can contact on E-mail: balogun.herbalsolutioncenter@gmail.com.
