This recipe comes from my dad. He always used a black iron skillet. Of course it is CAJUN!!!! A note from the editor: Be sure the house is well ventilated if cooking indoors--it will set off your smoke alarms! Blackened fish may be done in a cast iron skillet on a barbeque grill or propane burner (camp stove).
