Snook is a delicious, firm, white fish. Here’s a simple, local go-to recipe that gives the fish a smokey flavor. Enjoy!
2 snook fillets
Oil, either vegetable or olive
Sprinkle blackening spice on fillet and press it lightly into the fillet.
Heat a cast iron skillet on high and wait until the skillet is very hot.
Poor a half-cup of oil in the skillet and add the fillets.
Cook for about three minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillet, or until the seasoning develops into a crust.
Finish in the oven, at 350 or 400 degrees F, if the seasoning is close to burning but the fish isn’t fully cooked.
