This is a blackened grouper recipe that I created for my blog. The ingredients are listed below and the steps to make it are also provided. It’s delicious, easy, and will be loved by all who try it!

1. Grouper with Blackened Seasoning.

This blackened grouper uses the blackening seasoning from our blackening rub to coat and blacken the fish. The blackened seasoning is a bit more mild than our original blackening spice, so it does not overpower this superb oily fish. It also imparts a slight hint of smoke that pairs well with the mustard based cole slaw and spicy cajun shrimp we served alongside this blackened grouper recipe. This blackened grouper recipe was prepared for Barataria Grille’s Cookoff at Gulfstream Park in Delray Beach Florida as part of their Pompano Festival.

1 tablespoon Cajun Blackening Spice (recipe below)

4 pounds Grouper fillets cut into 8 pieces each [NOTE: blackening seasoning could blacken other fish as well]

8-10 ounces white flour (for dredging) 1/2 cup vegetable oil or vegetable shortening for frying (vegetable shortening has a higher smoke point than butter, so it works better at high heat) [NOTE: you can also bake the blackened grouper in the oven if you do not want to fry them. After coating with blackening seasonings, bake at 375 degrees on a greased cookie sheet for about 10 minutes on each side.]

For the Cole Slaw: Yield – 6 servings 4 cups cabbage thinly sliced and chopped 2 cups carrot shredded 3 tablespoons of sugar 1 tablespoon of vinegar salt and pepper to taste 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1. Mix the blackened seasoning from our blackening rub recipe with 2 tablespoons of oil to make blackening seasoning paste. You can use a black enameled dutch oven for this process if you possess one and do not mind its appearance or an iron skillet that can be cleaned easily without leaving black coating all over it. [NOTE: avoid aluminum or reactive cookware, like cast iron pots.]

2. Dredge each grouper fillet in flour, then blacken seasonings until blackened on both sides (about 15 minutes per side), remove and blot excess oils with paper towels to prevent burning while frying.

3. Heat about 3 tablespoons of vegetable shortening in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add blackened fish fillets and fry on each side for about 3 minutes or until blackened on both sides (you can blacken the skin side first with oil, if you prefer). Remove from saute pan onto paper towels to blot oils and excess seasonings. [NOTE: If blackening in the oven, bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes per side.]

4. For Cole Slaw: Mix cabbage, carrots, chopped green onions, sugar , vinegar salt and black pepper together in a large bowl until well combined. You may want to add more blackening seasoning to this cole slaw recipe depending upon your taste preferences.
