The refrigerator light goes on...

This healthy recipe is so quick and simple and there's nothing better than the taste of New Orleans. The iron skillet will let you heat the pan until it is smoking hot - and that's key to the blackened spice crust. If you don't have an iron skillet, use a stainless steel or aluminum pan, but not one coated with non-stick material.

Blackened fish recipe from Dr. Gourmet

Preheat oven to 500°F. Place a large cast iron skillet in the oven.

Combine the paprika, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, thyme, and oregano in a small bowl. Mix together until well blended.

When the pan is hot, place the fish on a cutting board, skin side down. Spray lightly with oil and carefully dust the top of the filets with the spice mixture.

Place the fish in the hot pan, skin side up, and return the pan to the oven. Cook for about 8 - 10 minutes and serve.
