Blackened Fish Recipe — easy spicy fish dish


Chef Buck here and today we’re gonna cook up a little blackened fish this is a simple and easy recipe definitely not rocket science I’m using an 8oz cut of mahi mahi and cutting it in half so you’ll have 2, 4oz portions first thing you’ll do is season up both sides if this was a traditional blackened fish recipe we’d dredge it in butter first, but we’re gonna be healthy and skip that step season the fish with salt, pepper, ginger some chili powder, paprika …whatever the hell you like you can mix spices together before hand and have your own personal spice rub sprinkle it on there…no muss no fuss once your fish is coated heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add a little
butter add a little oil to the butter to keep it from burning once the oil is heated, add the fish to the skillet you want the skillet hot so the fish starts cooking right away cooking time will vary on the size of the fish, but for these small pieces I’ll cook 2 minutes on each side fish cooks quickly, so be careful not to overcook if the fish starts to flake in the pan, it’s cooked too much! you don’t want fish to overcook and be too dry remove fish from the heat just BEFORE you think it’s done ’cause it will continue to cook even after it is off the heat try this recipe with mahi mahi, catfish, redfish…whatever the hell you like give this recipe a try and let me know what you think, and bon apetit!

  1. I wish I had seen this the other night. I had haddock filets. Bookmarking for next week!

  2. Same here. Hey I know you said you're trying to watch your figure, but can you do a fried cat fish nugget and fried okra recipe?

  3. Hey I was watching The Young Turks last night and they said the fisherman in the gulf are seeing weird deformities in the fish shrimp and crab…IDK… maybe we should not eat seafood anymore…not to mention Fukashima radiation coming into the peaceful pacific ?
    Hard to do for an Ol' Florida gal but…no seafood , no how !

  4. Hey Chef Buck, I always enjoy watching your videos, have you seen my drunken rosemary fish marinade.?? It was the very FIRST cooking video I have made. Thank you for Inspiring me to make my own cooking videos, although you are the king.

  5. NICE! 4 ounces of protein is really all most people need for a meal, whether it's fish, beans, whatever….most Americans eat way too much protein these days so good to see you using the 4 ounce serving demonstration here! Also cast iron pans are fab for blackening…I burnt my arm turning a piece of blackened fish once from splattering oil, not so fab…

  6. Chef, I think you are showing off by flipping 'dem frying fishes with your bare hands. Nice job, yet again!

  7. i like your presentation. it's got that warm southern charm. i didn't realize it was so easy to make blackened fish 'til i saw it.

    i got a bit o cous cous at home and a fish market i sometimes pass on my way home from work.

  8. Very simple recipe. Told me what I needed to know and didn't spend a bunch of time talkin about crap I don't care about. Thanks.

  9. Just finished. Cooked it, ate it. Wonderful. I had to let my cook a little longer on each side cause I had a really thick piece of of fish. Went with the Mahi. I wouldn't of used the chili pepper had I not seen your vid. worked great. Thanks again.
