"For Blackened fish or chicken (great on any type of fish, especially on denser types of fish). The nice thing about this recipe is that the dish doesn't taste burnt even though you can get a nice blackened look. The sugar and the thyme caramelize and give it a wonderful flavor. All my friends love it." — TOMSGONEFISHIN

1 1/2 teaspoons
cayenne pepper, or to taste
Very good, Very authentic. Added a little more heat as is our preferrence but this is the base recipe that I have adopted and change as mood reflects
I'm only giving this one two stars because its basically the same rub as the one used for Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast. It was good, but tasted the same, even with the difference of nutmeg, sugar, and cumin. Those are some expensive spices! The amounts vary between the recipes, obviously, because one is meant for a single roast and the other is meant to be stored. Save yourself the trouble and costs of extra ingredients and stick to the Sirloin rub.
It's the perfect blackening mixture!! Had it on Salmon. I also reduced the sugar to about a tsp and found that to be just right. Have shared the recipe with 3 other people already
I had never "blackened" anything before and was skeptical at the beginning because it smells strange when it starts to cook, but the end result was delicious. I can't wait to experiment with this seasoning again.
I have never had anything blackened, but my husband and son love blackened fish, so i gave it a try.
The only change I made was to reduce the salt to 1 tsp.
I have to say this will now be served on a regular basis at my house! It is a great seasoning.
I did adjust the salt just a bit because we're watching our sodium intake. This was just what I needed, thanks.
We used halibut with this recipe and cooked it on a really hot cast iron griddle. The result was fantastic. I had cut the fist into strips and we put them into fish tacos when it was all done. Yum!
Oh my goodness, thes was AMAZING. Tried it tonight with some chicken tenders - sauted in skillet with small amount of olive oil. Also cooked some white fish (Swai) using the seasoning. WONDERFUL!!! Tasted like something from a really nice restaraunt. Highly recommend!!!

Tastes just like a popular restaurant’s seasoning mix for beef tacos.
See how to make a simple finishing salt that’s also a great food gift.
The kick of herbs and spices gives this chili amazing flavor, with less fat.
