Blackening Seasoning

We have tons of white fish (halibut and tilapia) in our freezer. Although this fish tastes great without much seasoning, sometimes I like to add some heat to the fish. I've used this blackening seasoning a number of times in the past. A combination of a number of recipes I found on the internet, this recipe is now a staple in my cupboard, usually mixed together and sealed in a mason jar.

Blackening Seasoning
  • 1 heaping tbsp paprika
  • 1 heaping tsp garlic powder
  • 1 heaping tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (I like to add between 1/2-1 tsp for more heat)
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
This seasoning is perfect for fish or chicken and can be easily modified. If you like a bit of salt in your seasoning, 1-2 tsp would be sufficient.
