Blackened Red Snapper
« on: February 18, 2011, 06:15:46 PM »
Can't get much easier...this was dinner tonight!

1 pound red snapper, center fillet (fresh is preferred, not so lucky tonight)

Old Bay or Cajun rub de jour
3 Tbsp EVOO
1 Tbsp butter

Dry the fillet with a paper towel, season and heat EVOO and butter in a cast iron skillet.

When it starts to brown the butter, drop in the fillets and cook a few minutes skin down first and flip for a couple more.

Should be just opaque, don't overcook...

Enjoy with a nice bed of corn grits (polenta).....or your favorite side!

That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants."
