MY REVIEW

"This was a bit on the spicy side for me, however, if you like pepper the others that ate it liked it! Thanks +Taste of Home for the #recipe #fish #spicyfoods #30MinutesOrLess Recipe http://heatskitchen.blogspot.com/2014/05/blackened-fish.html"

MY REVIEW

"I was excited to see an approachable blackened recipe. It was really yummy and flavorful. However, we had one piece that was WAY too salty. Next time I will use half of the salt and possibly add it at the end instead of to the bag."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe was great! I love recipes with a kick and this recipe definitely had that. I used a non stick skillet and substituted Tilapia for Halibut because that is what we had at home. We used the blackened fish in tacos and topped with a sweet spicy slaw. It was delicious! We will be making this again soon. It is a great summer recipe!"

"This recipe is fantastic! I also used a non stick skillet and it turned out great. I served a green salsa and avocado over the top and it was delicious!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 21, 2012

"I was skeptical at first, but it was perfectly salty-seasony & delicious. I don't have a cast-iron skillet--just used a large nonstick--and it took a lot longer for our pieces of halibut to cook; I've got to keep that in mind for next time so as not to overdo the black."
