Cajun Seasoned Fish Filets
Our Cajun Seasoned Fish Filets recipe is easy to make, and quite delicious. We blended our Cajun Seasoning to deliver the large flavor you expect to find in any seasoning down in the bayou. The touch of cayenne adds just the right amount of spiciness for any Cajun blend. Used on these delicate fish filets and you have a dish to build around. We like using cod, but you can use just about any white fish, including Tilapia, Halibut, Red Snapper, even Catfish. Cooked in a cast iron skillet or other heavy pan and they come out with a blackened, but tender crust.
We like to serve our Cajun Seasoned Fish Filets with a rice side dish and maybe a seasonal green vegetable. Wild Rice, Red Beans & Rice, or just a seasoned white rice and you’re set.
4 4oz. Cod, Halibut, Tilapia, or other flaky white fish filets
2 to 3 Tablespoons Sheffield’s Cajun Seasoning
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tablespoon Butter (unsalted is the best)
Sprinkle the Cajun Seasoning on both sides of the fish filets. Gently rub in, cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours to let the flavor develop into the fish a bit.
Melt the butter and olive oil in a cast iron or other heavy skillet, over medium-high heat. Swirl the melted mixture so it covers the bottom of the pan. Place the filets in the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes, depending on thickness. Turn over and cook another 3-4 minutes until done and fork flaky. Don’t overcook and watch so they don’t burn.
Carefully use a spatula to remove the fish from the pan. Serve immediately.
Serve with Wild Rice, Red Beans & Rice, or just a seasoned white rice and you’re set. Add a seasonal vegetable and there’s your Cajun dinner.
