Naples Fishing Recipes: Blackened Snook

By May 31, 2016March 2nd, 2018Fishing Recipes

Snook is a delicious, firm, white fish. Here’s a simple, local go-to recipe that gives the fish a smokey flavor.  Enjoy!

Blackened Snook


2 snook fillets
Blackening spice
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.
