Blackened Mahi Mahi

4 Aug

So… clearly I’ve been experimenting with my blackening seasoning lately (see previous post for Cajun chicken pasta.) Truth be told, my Cajun recipe kick may have begun with Cajun pasta, but the thought process all began sitting in a BRIO restaurant in Denver Colorado. I went with the daily special, which happened to be blackened mahi mahi….and it was SO GOOD it prompted me to buy blackening spices and do this at home. The results were delicious.


– 16 oz Mahi Mahi filets (I used frozen filets from Kroger, and thawed before making)
– 1 1/2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
– 1/2 cup all purpose flour
– 1 tbsp. blackening spices (I used more for my own piece, because I like things HOT)

That’s it. Simple, quick. Delicious.

1. Mix flour and seasoning well.

2. Rinse and pat dry fish filets.

3. Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high heat (5-6 on the stovetop)

4. Coat fish liberally with flour mixture.

5. Place filets in hot skillet and allow to cook long enough to get a good crust on the first side.

6. Flip fish over and repeat until 2nd side is crusted.

7. Continue periodically flipping fish until middle is flakey and cooked through. About 11 min I think is what it took.

    […] Cooks Confession: I hate the smell of fresh fish cooking in my house. I just can’t do it. So, I prefer to use frozen tilapia fillets, which I believe turned out pretty awesome, and were much less expensive. If you go this route, thaw the fillets before cooking. I also regularly use frozen mahi mahi fillets, which are also good. check out my blackened mahi recipe here. […]
