"Fillets of red snapper are coated with a mixture of pepper and herbs, then cooked at high heat until the coating blackens. Spicy and delicious!" — Sandra

ground black pepper
4 (6 ounce) fillets

This recipe was fabulous! I cooked it on the grill, instead of in a skillet and served it on a bed of linguine in a garlic butter sauce. The subtlty of the linguine balanced well with the boldness of the snapper.
I cooked this tonight. My husband and I were not pleased with it. It tasted plain, didn't have any flavor, except burn taste. I would recommend you to sprinkle some salt while the fish still hot from the skillet. It might taste better with added salt. I would not make this again.
I have been looking for a seasoning mix to use for blackened fish and chicken. This was really easy and the snapper was great! I also put the spice mix in my steamed cauliflower and it was wonderful, too. I highly recommend this recipe.
This was pretty good. I used it on fresh Tilapia fillets since I couldn't find red snapper. Using a cast iron skillet works great.
This recipe is super fast and easy! My husband and I loved the wonderful flavor. The only downside is that it smokes- a lot.
Keeping Hubs' sensitive innards in mind, I cut back significantly on the cayenne pepper, to only 1/2 tsp., which worked out well. I used smoked paprika, but I'm sure sweet paprika would be equally as good. Not wanting the odor, smoke and grease in the house, we do use the cast iron pan, but we get it screamin' hot on the outdoor charcoal grill. What was different for me with this recipe was the seasoning. I use one consistently that we particularly enjoy, but we were pleased with this for something a little different.
It was excellent!! My husband doesn't really like fish, but he raves about this recipe. We're from and still live in New Orleans, so we're used to spice. I must say that this recipe has a little too much pepper, but other than that, it is great!
Little to spicy, lessen cayyene pepper for perfect taste.
