Blackened Red Snapper



I went to our local seafood market, Gulf Coast Connection, today and got some red snapper fillets and decided to blacken and cook them in the oven. Wow, were they good! You could substitute another kind of fish such as catfish or tilapia if you want. This is easy and cooks quickly!


Here’s what you need:

3-4 red snapper fillets

1 1/2 T paprika

1/2 t salt

1 t onion powder

1 t garlic powder

1/4 t black pepper

1/8-1/4 t cayenne pepper ( depending on your taste)

olive oil cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 425. Rinse and pat dry the fish. Mix the salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne together. Place the fish on a baking sheet that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Generously sprinkle the seasoning mixture on both sides of the fish. Spray the tops of the fish lightly with the cooking spray. Cook at 425 for about 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately!
