FIERY BLACKENED WILD ALASKA POLLOCK
Time: 20 mins
4 Perfect Pollock Portions® (5 to 6 ounces each) 6 to 8 lemon wedges
½ cup canola oil or melted butter 2 tablespoons blackening spice (recipe below, or prepared blackening spice will work)
1 tablespoon paprika 2.5 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon cayenne ¾ tablespoon black pepper
½ tablespoon dried thyme ½ tablespoon dried oregano
- Rub each Wild Alaska Pollock fillet in 1 tablespoon of canola oil or butter and dust liberally with the blackening spice.
- Preheat oven to 200°F and ready a lined baking sheet. Heat a large skillet (cast iron is ideal) over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes and turn on ventilation system. Carefully place two fillets into the skillet, pour half of the remaining oil over each fillet, and cook until the bottom of each fillet appears charred, about 2 minutes.
- Turn fillets over and continue to sear until fish is cooked through (time will vary according to the heat of the pan).
- Place seared fillets onto the lined baking sheet and put into the oven to keep warm.
- Repeat the method with the other two fillets. Serve with melted butter and lemon wedges.
