Now you just might think this is an advertisement for Chef Paul and I’m here to tell you, absolutely and flat out – it is.
So here goes… If you don’t have a commercial hood vent over your stove, this dish will set off every smoke alarm in your neighborhood! It’s better to cook it outdoors on a gas grill or a butane burner.

3 tablespoons Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Seafood Magic® OR Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Blackened Redfish Magic® OR Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Meat Magic® OR Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Barbecue Magic® OR Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Fajita Magic® OR Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Seasoning Salt® OR Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Magic Salt Free Seasoning®
1/2 stick unsalted butter (melted) or oil
6 (8 to 10 ounce) fish filets (firm fleshed fish such as red snapper, catfish, redfish, salmon, or tuna steaks), at room temperature, cut about 1/2 inch thick
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over very high heat until it is extremely hot (about 600°F). Spread a little of the butter or oil on each side of the filets. Sprinkle one side with 3/4 teaspoon of Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Blackened Redfish Magic and place the filet in the heated skillet seasoned side down. Sprinkle the top side with 3/4 teaspoon of the Magic Seasoning Blend. Cook, turning frequently until the fish starts to flake, about 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining filets. Serve each filet while piping hot.
