If you love fish and things that are blackened – well, welcome to heaven.

It’s no secret that the hubs and I love to eat fish (hello, we are from Florida!). One of our favorite ways to make it is with a sprinkle of blackening seasoning and a quick sear in a pan. Super fast, and packed with flavor. Marinades or fancy coatings aren’t always necessary (and I definitely don’t always have time for them!).
Our favorite blackening seasoning is one called Chef Paul’s Magic Redfish Blackening. It’s delicious and is always great to have on hand. It doesn’t only have to be used on fish – we sprinkle it on chicken as well!
Note: Chef Paul did not ask that I promote his product, nor was I compensated in any way shape or form for doing so. His Magic Redfish Blackening Seasoning is simply a product that I have used for years and absolutely love.
We didn’t serve these sandwiches with any sides since the flatbread makes it a pretty filling dish in and of itself. All I did was whip up a spicy tartar sauce to go on them:
You can make a homemade tartar sauce from scratch if you wish; but a quick shortcut that will do the trick is to buy pre-made tartar sauce and ‘doctor’ it up. I add a few tsp fresh lemon juice, plus some sort of spice (cayenne, sriracha, blackening seasoning – or a mix of all 3) to personal taste. It’s a quick simple way to pump up an otherwise bland sauce!Print
