Great on white fish, Member the_a5

I use this spice on sole and tilapia. I cover the fillets in this blackening spice and then fry the fillet in a pan with some oil. I put just enough oil that it covers the pan, but does not deep fry the fillet. I fry both sides of the fillet until fully cooked then I brush the fillet with a mixture of garlic powder (or Johnny's garlic spread), minced garlic, and lime juice. The flavours are amazing!
