10 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 lemon wedge)

This blackened grouper recipe has some heat but the lime juice adds a refreshing zest. Be careful when adding the fish to the pan, as the butter and oil may splatter.

How to Make It

Rub each side of fillets with Cajun Spice Mix. Heat 2 1/2 teaspoons oil and 2 1/2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 5 fillets; cook for 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Repeat procedure with remaining oil, butter, and fillets. Serve with lemon wedges.

This was so delicious! I did substitute fresh Alaskan cod in place of the grouper. It was quite spicy...almost too spicy for my 12yo son, but I enjoyed it very much. The recipe called for lemon, but in the description, it called for lime...so I used lime wedges. I'm INDUBITABLY making this again....and again...and again!
