Cajun-Seared Fish Fillets


  • 2 fillets of your favorite fish
  • 2 tablespoons Louisiana Cajun Blackened Seasoning
  • ½ stick butter divided into two (2 tablespoons Brummel and Brown Spread can be substituted for ½ the fat and calories!)


Sprinkle Louisiana Cajun Blackened Seasoning on both sides of fish fillets. In a large sauté pan bring 2 tablespoons of butter to a simmer. Place fillets into skillet and sauté for 2-3 minutes until just starting to brown. Flip fillets and cook for another 2-3 minutes until desired doneness is achieved. With heat off, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and let melt slowly swirling pan from side to side.
