What's For Dinner ?? The burning question every evening.  Last night we had a great dinner. Over the summer we went fishing in Florida and had a fantastic experience.  I defrosted some fish from our fishing trip and then thought for a while to come up with a recipe.

NOTE:   If you don't have fish in your freezer you can purchase great fish (non farm raised) at  

I decided on the menu:  Blackened Fish with roasted potatoes, broccoli and a quick Ceasar Salad.

Here is the recipe for Blackened Fish:

Blackened Fish Seasoning:

1 Tablespoon paprika

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon cayenne

3/4 teaspoon white pepper

3/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

Mix all ingredients together.

There are a few secrets to blackening your fish to perfection.  You will need: Cast iron skillet - smoking hot, melted butter

First, rinse your fish and dry each piece with a paper towel.  Then dip the fish in melted butter and then coat with the seasoning.  Place in skillet and sear on both sides.   Enjoy

The roasted potatoes are super easy - cut up the potatoes and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Place in the oven that is pre-heated 400 degrees.  Roast until tender 25 - 45 minutes.

I used a bag of broccoli and cooked it in the microwave.  Seasoned with a little Tony's Seasoning.

I purchased the broccoli from Sams Club in Covington.   It's a 4 pound bag of broccoli that has 4 portion bags of broccoli.

This was an easy dinner and very yummy.
