Blackened Cod Fillet
- 3-4 Cod fillets
- Cajun Seasoning
- Kosher Salt
- unsalted butter
- Before seasoning, you’ll want to pat the fish dry with paper towels so the Cajun spices adhere properly. Once it’s dry, sprinkle both sides with your Cajun seasoning and salt.
- Melt the butter in a large cast-iron skillet over high heat, and add the seasoned fish. Let it cook undisturbed until the bottom is blackened; It should take 1 to 3 minutes, but cook time depends on the thickness of the fish. You’ll be able to tell it’s ready to flip when the sides along the bottom edge start looking opaque.
- Carefully flip the fish over and continue cooking for another 1-3 minutes. If your fillets are especially thick, use an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the fish until it reaches 145 degrees. When it’s fully cooked, you’ll be able to press a fork on top and see it start to flake. Serve with lemon wedges and parsley if desired.
