BLACKENED SNOOK

Ingredients:
 

2 snook fillets (1 whole fish)

Blackening spice (Yanovich prefers the Paul Prudhomme version. It's available at most local grocery stores)

Oil, either vegetable or olive

 

Preparation:
 

Sprinkle blackening spice on fillet and press it lightly into the fillet.

Heat a cast iron skillet on high and wait until the skillet is very hot.

Poor a half-cup of oil in the skillet and add the fillets.


Cooking Instructions:

 

Cook for about three minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillet, or until the seasoning develops into a crust.

Finish in the oven, at 350 or 400 degrees, if the seasoning is close to burning but the fish isn't fully cooked.
