Grilled Blackened Seasoning for Pompano or White Fish Recipe


Blacked Grouper is another favorite here in Florida, we just love this in a sandwich, on top of lettuce greens or by itself!

The grilled Pompano is just bursting with flavor!




6 fresh Pompano fillets or you can use Snook, Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, Redfish
3 sticks of unsalted butter, melted

Blackened Seasoning Mixture:

1 tablespoon sweet paprika
2 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground red pepper ( cayenne)
3/4 teaspoon white pepper and black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon rosemary

Place all seasonings in a plastic large bag and shake till well combined. Unused mixture can be stored in empty spice jar.  In a large pie plate add melted butter and dip each fillet in melted butter on both sides.  Shake seasoning mix generously and evenly.  Place fillets skin side down in white hot cast iron skillet on outdoor grill. Pour one teaspoon of melted butter on top of each fillet. I suggest cooking to be done outdoors because of extreme smoke from skillet. Once skin side has been blackened.

Note if using Redfish and Snook  their fillets must be skinned before cooking and both sides sprinkled generously with seasoning mix.

I like this seasoning so aromatic and spicy very much . I don't know Pompano fish but I think it's good for cod too. Thanks for the suggestion. Bye, have a great week

Looks perfect to me. I use the same process and it always turns out well.

I think my fish of choice might be catfish. Then on a nice roll with some lettuce and maybe a nice slice each of onion and tomato could send me over the edge into ecstasy.

My personal favorite! This is an awesome recipe. Usually I treat myself to blackened grouper when we go out to eat...but only because I didn't have a recipe I really trusted. Gonna have to give this a try!

I don't eat fish nearly as much as I should...but I could definitely see adding this seasoning on top of some mahi mahi and going at it like there's no tomorrow! :)

I love grilling, and I love grilling fish. I'm grilling salmon wrapped in banana leaves this afternoon.

I used to catch pompano all the time when I lived in Texas!
