  • 2 filets Barramundi or other thick white fish
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp blackening or Creole seasoning


  • Remove skin from fish and cut into filets. Season one side of the fish filets with blackening seasoning. Coat well. 
  • Melt butter in microwave, and skim fats from butter with a spoon to make clarified butter. 
  • Heat a heavy bottomed pan or cast iron skillet to medium heat, and then add clarified butter to pan. 
  • Place fish seasoned side down, and cook about 5 minutes. Or, until you can see that filet has cooked half way. Turn the filets over and cook for about 5 more minutes or until fish is completely cooked. 
  • Remove to plate, and let rest two minutes prior to serving.
