Hello Wampus Cat,
I was thinking today at work that I'd start to learn how to cook fish. First of all I don't cook, but I thought... why not. So I click onto your Blacken' Dolphin, which happens to be my Favorite of all, and there's my receipe. However, I look at your pictures and say... no way can I put a dish like that together. Please tell me the first picture is from a website. If you cooked that and took the picture, I might have to stick to fish sticks from McDonalds.
Lemme no when you can. Thanks

We catch a lot of dolphin here and blackened dolphin is quick, easy and fool-proof. I actually made this last night so here's my super-easy recipe - it's always a hit with friends. You must use a cast iron skillet and you cannot do this in the house because of the smoke. If you have a single propane or butane gas burner that's the only way to go.

Ingredients:
- Dolphin fillets (or snapper, redfish, fresh kingfish, etc.)
- 1/2 stick of butter
- Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning (or similar Cajun seasoning)
- Well-seasoned cast iron skillet (not rusty or oily please)
- Thin, flexible metal spatula

1. Clean and skin dolphin fillets removing bloodline, etc. Fillets should not be more
than 3/4" thick so thicker fillets should be split in half.
2. Cut fillets into pieces about 5" long
3. Melt 1/2 stick of butter in a flat bottomed Corningware dish big enough to
dip the fish pieces into. Don't get the butter scalding hot - just melt it
in the microwave for 30 seconds or whatever it takes
4. Start getting your well-seasoned cast iron skillet really hot
5. On a large platter or cookie sheet sprinkle an even layer of Tony's
6. Dip the fillets in butter, coat all sides and then place them on the platter
7. Sprinkle the tops of the fillets with more Tony's before the butter
8. Scoop them up and place them in the HOT skillet with the flat spatula
9. Sear for 2 minutes or so per side (don't burn it, just put a nice brown sear on 'em)
10. Serve with cold beers, Cajun style dirty rice, and maybe some nice fresh home-made mango salsa and steamed veggies

You can easily add more or less seasoning spice as you prefer. Also try different types of blackening spices - there are a million types and some are better than Tony's.
BTW - If you need to cook a second batch of fish you should cool down the skillet a little, scrape it with the spatula and wipe it out really good with paper towels otherwise you'll just be burning the butter and stuff from the first batch.

Enjoy

Success! Thanks Pete and Wampus Cat... I spent father day dinner cooking with my wife. She normally does all the cooking except when I want to do the steaks. So, we had a great time cooking Blackened Dolphin, grilled Spanish Mackerel, and grilled veggies. We topped it off with some corn pudding and an A&W root beer! Great fathers day!
PS After I saw the price of the Dolphin, I said we better go fishing more often to catch our own. I know, I know, that would put the price of the fish at somewhere around $100 per pound. haha
