  • 4 fresh red snapper fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


Follow these simple steps to create a masterpiece that will impress your family and friends:

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat or set your oven to broil.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the Cajun seasoning, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  3. Rub the spice mixture evenly onto both sides of each red snapper fillet.
  4. Brush the grill grates or a baking sheet with melted butter to prevent sticking.
  5. If grilling, place the seasoned red snapper fillets onto the preheated grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
  6. If using the oven, place the seasoned fillets on the prepared baking sheet and broil for 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through and nicely browned.
  7. Remove from heat and let the fish rest for a couple of minutes.
  8. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the fillets and garnish with fresh parsley.
  9. Serve hot and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

Here are some additional tips and variations to elevate your blackened red snapper recipe:

  • If you prefer a milder flavor, reduce the amount of Cajun seasoning and cayenne pepper.
  • For a smoky twist, use smoked sea salt instead of regular salt when seasoning the fish.
  • Consider adding a squeeze of lime or a drizzle of hot sauce for an extra kick.
  • Serve the blackened red snapper on a bed of rice or with a side of roasted vegetables for a complete and satisfying meal.
  • Experiment with different herbs and spices to create your own unique flavor profile.
