Great seasoning makes for a delicious, Cajun fish dish.
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tsp lemon pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 4 (4oz) red fish fillets
- 1-1/4 cups Italian salad dressing
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter and cool to room temperature. In a small bowl, add the cayenne, black and lemon pepper, garlic powder and salt - set aside.
Meanwhile heat a cast iron pan or large skillet on high. Dip the fish fillets in the melted butter and press into the dry spice mixture. Carefully place in the heated pan and sear each side for two minutes.
Place the seared fillets in a 9x13 inch pan (depending on how many fillets you are cooking). Now completely drizzle with the Italian salad dressing, cover pan and bake for 30 minutes or until flaky/tender. Delicious.
