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.

Hey Barbara, my family and I really dig this snapper recipe. Your blackened seasoning mix is superb and I plan to use it on other fish and chicken. This recipe was very easy to follow and produced a very spicy, delicious, and tender snapper fillet. Thanks.

I made this recipe last night for dinner and it was really good. I cut back on the butter some, using as little as possible to cut back on the fat grams. I'll definately make it again. Thanks! Good fish recipes are hard to find.

Great spice mixture. I used this spice mixture to season chicken breasts for chicken caesar salad (Traditional Caesar Salad). I only used half of the cayenne pepper and it was still a little too spicy for my kids. Next time I will use 1/4 of the cayenne and 1/2 of the salt. This was my first attempt at making a blackened seasoning and it was much better than the pre-made stuff!

This recipe is truly delicious and, since making it, I cannot live without having the spice mix on hand. I have also used it on meat and chicken; excellent on both. Last night I used a scant teaspoon of melted butter rubbed on the meaty side of a salmon fillet, added a bit of lemon zest to the spices, sprinkled liberally on top and baked at 400*; moist, delicious, colorful and flavorful, yet very healthy and low in fat. Any of a number of sauces would go well on this. Next time I do the spices, I'm making a triple batch!

Amazing!! I can't wait to make it again!! I only used about half the butter and I halved the cayenne and it was perfect for us.

Very tasty and extremely easy. I have replaced butter with olive oil and the results was great. Highly recommended.
