Cajun Pan Fried Fish
2-4 Fillets of Fish Local white meat fish – i.e. Snapper, Tilapia or Sole
2-4 Tbsp. Cajun Blend Seasoning
1 Lemon or Lime Cut into thin slices with one slice through the skin
1 Tbsp. Parsley
¼ Cup Olive Oil
  • Once the fish fillets are cleaned, dry them off with paper towel - it is important the fillets are dry to make sure the spices stick and to avoid the oil from popping.
  • Sprinkle all of the Cajun Blend Seasoning on the fillets and pat the seasoning on the fillets to make it stick be sure to coat the fillets generously.
  • Now that the fillets are prepared, pre-heat a skillet on medium heat, preferably a non-stick skillet or wok with thick bottom to maintain heat.
  • Add the olive into the skillet (covering bottom of skillet) and heat the oil until the oil just starts to smoke.
  • Once smoke appears, immediately put the fillets in the skillet and they will start to sear and smoke, which is normal.
  • Pending on the thickness of the fillets, let the fillets cook on one side for a minute (or until golden brown).
  • Flip over the fillets and cook for 1 minute (or until golden brown) - do not overcook the fish.
  • Once cooked, remove the fillets and put on dry sheet, paper towel or rack to remove any residual oil.
  • While the fillets are still hot, you can sprinkle some more Cajun Blend and salt to taste.
  • Finally sprinkle the fillets with parsley and top each fillet with a lemon slice.
This is a quick, healthy way to each fish and you can compliment this dish with your favorite vegetables with the same recipe.
