Tasty but following the instructions to a T might help you get your recommended water intake for the day. I like spicy foods, but i’d 1/2 the cayenne pepper if you are not a fan of too much heat. I slugged down about 20 oz of ice water after eating this. Yummy but hot!

Since I don't like a lot of salt I used just 1 tsp of salt, the same for the pepper and cut the cayenne pepper to 1/2 tbsp. I made striped bass (rock fish), it took a bit longer but was really good. My husband loved it. I'm keeping this recipe

Terrible! Ruined some perfectly good halibut. Way to much salt and cyan, even after I decreased the ammounts by a third.

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.

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!

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.

This was very, very tasty and I would make it again. Made a dill sauce condiment to serve on the side which really complimented the heat in this recipe. Easy and not time consuming.
