      Easy to make! I cut the recipe in half (well, the computer did all the work) and used it as more of a rub. My husband put the fillets on the grill in a basket and they were delicious. I did add some olive oil to the butter- just because I always have to be different. Definately will try this again- probably will be good on grouper too.

      Wonderful recipe!! The spice combination is awesome. Have had blackened snapper at several restaurants and this was better than any of those. Makes me long for a trip to New Orleans. Thanks Barbara!

      I am interested in great fish recipes. This certainly turned out to be one of them. The spice mix was there. I didn't have to use as much butter as was called for and it still had a good blackened coating. Thanks for sharing this.
