Blackened Fish Fillets

Blackened Fish Fillets

You can blacken fish fillets inside your house on a stovetop, but why make the mess? If you’re all for a simple, easy after dinner clean-up, then do it on your ASF BBQ pit. This BBQ fish fillet recipe just makes sense!  Light a large pile of coals in the pit, grab a cast iron skillet and some grease, and you’re ready to go!

Prep Time: 15 - 20 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes


Fish Fillets

Blackened Seasoning

Olive Oil

Cast Iron Skillet


Step 1 - Light a fire in the BBQ pit using a generous pile of charcoal.

Step 2 - Liberally season both sides of each fish fillet with blackened seasoning.

Step 3 - Pour a thin layer of olive oil in the cast iron skillet.

Step 4 - Once all of the charcoal in the pit has turned gray and it is putting off plenty of heat, place the skillet on the grill directly over the coals and allow the oil to heat up for a few minutes.

Step 5 - Sear the fillets on each side in the skillet for a minute or two, or until they develop a dark, crust-like appearance.  The fish fillets should flake to the touch when they are done.

Step 6 - Serve over a bed of rice and enjoy.
