- 2 lbs Redfish filets
- 4 tbsp Unsalted butter, plus an additional 2 tablespoons for serving
- ½ cup Slap Ya Mama Signature Blends Blackened Seasoning
- Lemon Wedges for serving
- Begin by running your fingers over the fish filets, checking for any pin bones. Use kitchen tweezers or needle-nose pliers to remove any that you find
- Heat a cast iron skillet until it's smoking hot on a hot grill. Place the skillet on the grate and preheat with the grill covered.
- Melt the 4 tablespoons of butter in a separate skillet. Dip the fish filets in the melted butter, ensuring both sides are coated
- Evenly spread the Slap Ya Mama Signature Blends Blackened Seasoning on a plate.
- Dip each piece of buttered fish into the blackening spice, ensuring both sides are thickly crusted with the spice. Immediately place the spice-coated fish in the hot cast iron skillet.
- Cook until the bottom side is very dark brown, typically 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the fish and continue cooking until the second side is also darkly browned, and the fish is cooked through, totaling about 5 to 8 minutes. Be prepared for the aromatic smoke, as it's a natural part of the process.
- Transfer the blackened fish to a platter or individual plates. In the same skillet where you melted the initial butter, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Cook over high heat until it's sizzling and melted, which usually takes about 2 minutes. Pour this sizzling butter over the fish and serve with lemon wedges for an added zesty twist.
- Indulge in this delectable Blackened Redfish, seasoned to perfection with Slap Ya Mama's Blackened Spice.
