“Delicious, quick and easy dish to prepare! Best when caught fresh, but can use frozen. Made this recipe up when I was about 14, still it is one of my favorites!!!”

My husband is from Nawlins (New Orleans to the Northerners). He says this recipe is the REAL thing...very authentic. It really is delicious. I made one without the cayenne for our son. It also tasted great, though to my surprise, he liked the spicy one.

I like fish a lot, and this is my first try with a cajun do. Terrific! I goofed a little in not having the pan quite hot enf to sear -- I nearly cooked the fish in this step! I had also changed a little by using some olive oil in the pan because fridge temperature fish dipped in melted butter just caused butter globs on the first piece, and nothing for the rest. I sprinkled the mixed spices onto each piece with clean fingers ...tidier that way. We had it with ratatouille and a bottle of zinfindel. Killer good! I will do again and, after searing, just simmer in a little of the dressing instead of baking which IMO is an unnecessary, drying out step.
