Mullet Fillets Cajun Style

4 mullet fillets, skinned

1 tbsp. Cajun spice mix (see recipe below)

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. dried tarragon

½ tsp. fennel seeds

120g butter

Cajun Spice Mix

Combine 30g paprika, 15g black pepper, 2 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1 tbsp. garlic powder, 1 tbsp. onion powder.

Blend the salt, tarragon and fennel seeds with one tbsp. of the Cajun spice mix in a small bowl.

Melt the butter in a fry-pan, dip the fillets in the butter and sprinkle both sides of the fillets with the Cajun spice blend.

Cook the fish in a pan or on a barbecue plate for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the fillets blacken.

Serve with melted butter poured over.

Keep leftover spice in a screw-top jar.

As the cooking process may create smoke, it’s a good idea to turn on the extractor fan!

Serve with a fresh green salad.

Serves 4
