  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger root
  • 1/2 tsp fresh garlic
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 dash fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup salad oil

Directions

  • Preheat cast iron skillet. Rub filets with Cajun Blackening Spice. Sear both sides (no butter or oil needed) until rare or medium/rare.

  • To make Cajun Blackening Spice:Combine salt, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, black, white and cayenne pepper, thyme and oregano. Mix well.
