Blackened Mingo

20 Jan

I used this recipe for Blackened Snapper to cook the fish we caught on our Deep Sea Fishing trip. We learned from another fisherman on the trip that most times you order snapper from a restaurant, you are probably eating mingo.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground white pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 (6 ounce) fillets red snapper or mingo
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, melted

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together paprika, cayenne pepper, white pepper, black pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, and oregano.
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat for 10 minutes, or until extremely hot.
  3. Dip fish into melted butter, and sprinkle each fillet generously with the seasoning mixture. Place the fish fillets in the hot skillet. Pour 1 tablespoon of butter over each fillet. Cook until the coating on the underside of the fillet turns black, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the fish over. Pour another tablespoon of butter over the fish, and cook for 2 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

This meal was amazing. The level of spiciness is really high and I loved that. Ryan and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make this great dish. I know the freshness of the fish helped too.
