Cajun Blackened Redfish with Spanish Rice and Peach & Mango Salsa
Cajun Blackening is a technique popularized by the late, Celebrity Chef Paul Prudhomme. The food (usually fish) is dipped in melted butter and then dredged in a mixture of herbs and spices, usually some combination of thyme, oregano, chili pepper, peppercorns, salt, garlic powder and onion powder. It’s then cooked in a very hot cast-iron skillet. The brown-black color of the crust results from a combination of browned milk solids from the butter and charred spices. The original recipe calls for Redfish, but the same method of preparation can be applied to other types of fish or other foods such as beef steaks or chicken.
