Hopefully you didn’t think that I was going to leave you hanging with the blackening spice recipe from yesterday….let’s talk about some fun ways to use it. Today’s recipe is one of those great, simple recipes that looks fancy but actually is quite simple. Season the fish with the blackening spices, wrap it up in the zucchini, and cook it in a pan for 7-8 minutes. That’s it. This would work with almost any type of fish or quick cooking protein (think pounded thin chicken or pork) and works with any spices you like.

Instructions

  1. Using a peeler or mandoline, slice the zucchini into thin pieces lengthwise.
  2. Season the fish with 1/2 tbsp. blackening seasoning.
  3. Carefully wrap each piece of fish in the zucchini. Slightly overlapping the zucchinni will make this easier and help it stay in place.
  4. Sprinkle the wrapped fish with the remaining blackening spice.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a pan large enough to hold all of the fish. Add the fish placing the side with the ends of the zucchini slices down first.
  6. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until fish is flaky and cooked through.
