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
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.
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.
