  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
