This sounds really good "Cajun" style!

Have you ever had whats called "Blackened" fish. Its one of my favorite ways to eat seafood, its a grouper seasoned with cajun seasonings and cooked on a very high temp skillet. Thats all I know about it but I get it at a seafood restaurant in Vero Beach. I need to get back over their for a weekend sometime.

We do blackened redfish and catfish..you use a cast iron skillet it must be in a well ventilated area as it smokes, Emerill has the best blacken seasoning I have used.

Oh yes you're right it's "redfish" that they used, and I guess that's the most common fish to use for that blackened style. I don't know why I was thinking grouper.

Yeah I guess any type fish would work..lol I was thinking along the lines of 'seafood' when I said grouper but then I remembered it was redfish I had, but yes catfish would be great too I would think.

Any fish with firm meat texture can be used, catfish works very well

wow, this goes back so many years, i forgot how many, but when blackened redfish was so popular, ok on shear memory, the cajun chef, paul prudhommes i think , was he not one of the first to make blackened redfish so popular. i remember this being said, that the dish was so popular, they were worried about over fishing the redfish, i dont remember if they suggested a limit on them or not, i do remember that being said even if it were not true, but it could have been and probably was atleast 20 years ago, i remember the first blackened fish i had. it was in a resterant in panama city, not sure of the name , i think the tresure ship, anyway, it was made like a ship, gosh my kids were kids,now they blacken so many things not just fish but yalll know that, take care

Rosco you are right, the blackened fish became such a huge hit there were limits placed on redfish , there is still a length limit and catch limit today
