There are so many incredible ways to season fish. Even just going the super simple route with just salt and pepper can be delicious! We love fish, so coming up with lots of different way to cook it is always fun! One of our favorites so far is this Blackened Fish Seasoning. It’s so incredibly flavorful and we used as many common spices as we could to make it as easy as possible for everyone at home to make.
This seasoning is such a great one because the more you add, the spicier it gets! It’s perfect for people who love spicy food and is also perfect for anyone who doesn’t all that much. It’s such a good blend and can be used on so many fish type meals. It’s great on any kind of fish and tastes absolutely spectacular when used in fish tacos!
Fish is a very mild type of meat making it easy to overpower with lots of different flavors. With this seasoning, you can easily add more until it suits your taste without overpowering the fish. There are so may beautiful types of fish and this blend is one that you can use on practically any kind that you prefer.
Our main spice in this blend is paprika, which we love to use because it gives us such a wonderful flavor base to start any great tasting seasoning. We also use one certain spice called South African Smoke Blend that we got from Trader Joe’s and we are so in love with it! This particular spice adds a light smoky quality to these spices, making it even more delectable!
We decided to use a blackening spice blend because we are huge fans of the wonderful char you get when you use one. With this seasoning, getting that blackened layer on the outside of your filet is so easy and keeps the inside of your fish nice and tender.
