FOOD
Pan Blackened Fish

Ingredients

4 firm white fish fillets
(firm fleshed fish such as red snapper, catfish or redfish,
cut about 1/2 inch thick)
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
3 Tbs. Paul Prudhomme's Blackened Redfish
       Magic Seasoning Mix

Preparation

Rinse and dry the fish fillets.
Prepare the Blackened Seasoning Mix.

Using only a seasoned black cast iron skillet, place it on the burner EMPTY. Turn burner on high heat, until it is extremely hot (about 600°F). This dish will set off every smoke alarm in your neighborhood! It's better to cook it outdoors on a gas grill or a butane burner, because the cooking produces a tremendous amount of smoke.

Lay the fillets out on waxed paper, dip the fish into the melted butter, then sprinkle lightly with the blackened seasoning mix. When the skillet is hot, (has a white circle in the bottom) immediately place the fish in. Stand back, it will splatter and smoke. Turn the fillets over after 30 seconds and blacken the other side for 30 seconds. (Better to do only one or two fillets at a time.)
Be sure the skillet is hot enough and absolutely dry.  Be sure not to over-season the fish - the herbs and spices should highlight the taste rather than hide or overpower it.  You don't want to overcook the filet - there's a big difference between blackened and burned.

Remove the fish to your serving plate. 
Turn off the heat and stay away from the hot skillet.
Serve with a sliced tomato lightly dressed with vinaigrette.
