Spice Up Your Summer Grilling Recipes
Since Texans are enjoying more time at home these days, it’s the perfect opportunity to hone our culinary skills. With small outdoor gatherings being the safest way to entertain friends, now is the ideal time to experiment with some mouthwatering grilling recipes. This month, we collected some of our favorites from around the Dallas-Fort Worth area for you to feast upon.
Blackened Cast Iron Fish
We love supporting local whenever we can, and we recently discovered the wonders of all-natural, organic spices from a Texas company, Spiceworks Seasoning & Salts™. Bonus: All spice mixes are gluten-free and every ingredient is procured from growers who utilize sustainable farming practices.
Included in our spice box was this simple culinary masterpiece, which we eagerly tested and dined upon with delight. But don’t take our word for it—put some panache on your pescatarian meal and try it at home with your family.
First, don your most fashionable mask, meander over to your favorite fishmonger (we love TJ’s or Rex’s), and harness some hearty halibut, sea bass, Mahi, or salmon filets. Then, fire up the grill, and preheat your trusty cast-iron pan while you prepare your fish according to the grilling recipe below:
4-6 fish Filets
1/2 C Melted Butter
1/2 – 3/4 C Blackening Seasoning
Roasted Garlic Finishing Salt
- Place a cast-iron skillet on grill grates and heat to medium (325℉ – 350℉).
- Dredge fish in butter.
- Coat evenly with Spiceworks Blackening Seasoning.
- Lay fish skin-side down into skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes per side.
- Remove from heat and remove skin, if desired.
- Cover each filet with a squeeze of lemon juice.
- Finish with a sprinkle of Spiceworks Roasted Garlic Finishing Salt.
