Cajun-style Fish Filets

The Spice Trekkers Cook at Home

We prefer white fish filets for this recipe. It’s also great with ¾-inch thick tuna steaks.

Ingredients

  • 4 fish filets
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp Cajun Spices
  • 4 Tbsp clarified butter or coconut oil
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 4 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon

 

Method

  1. Gently rinse filets in cold water. Place fish, skin-side down, on a few paper towels. Place 2-3 sheets of paper towels on top. Let dry for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove paper towels on top and salt the fish. Let stand 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, grind spices; sprinkle on both sides of fish.
  4. Heat a pan on medium. Pour in half the clarified butter and place fish skin-side up. Let cook for 3-4 minutes without touching it.
  5. Spread remaining clarified butter on each piece of fish. Flip mackerel with a long spatula. Cook for 2 minutes more.  
  6. Lay fish on plates and garnish with chopped parsley and sliced scallions. Serve with lemon quarters.
