How to Make Blackened Fish on the Grill


  1. In a mixing bowl. mix together all ingredients for the blacking seasoning. Pour this into a jar with a tight fitting lid. You will have some left over and it will store very well.
  2. For the fish: reserve 1/3 of the melted butter for later.

    Set your grill for med-high heat. You will need a grill fish basket for grilling the fish
  3. Dip your fish in the melted butter, both sides. Then coat the fish with blackening mix on both sides.
  4. Make sure the grill is good and hot. The fish will cook fast and you will need to watch it..
    Place fish in the grill basket and close it so the fish does not move. Place on hot grill and cook for 2-3 minutes till the grilled side is black. Not burnt.
    Turn the fish over. Pour butter over the side that has been cooked. The fish will be golden brown and the seasoning will be black.
    Cook the other side for 2-3 minutes. No longer because the fish will burn. Remove from the grill carfully remove the fish from the basket. Serve over dirty rice along with any vegetable you mite want to grill. I grilled Zucchini
