Blackened Mahi Mahi & Homemade Cajun Spice Rub is your favorite fish fillet coated in Cajun spices and pan seared to perfection. Paprika, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, and more combine to make the perfect flavor combination. This dish has spicy kick to it, and is perfect for pairing with a salad or even in a fish taco.
In a small bowl, mix together all spices (paprika, mustard, cayenne, cumin, black pepper, white pepper, thyme, salt, garlic, onion powder).
Lay mahi mahi on a plate. Brush fillets evenly with 1 tbsp olive oil.
Sprinkle half of seasoning evenly over all fillets, patting down to make sure it sticks to fish. Flip fish over and repeat on other side.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining olive oil.
Once the pan is hot, add each fillet. Cook 2-3 minutes, or until bottom side looks charred. Turn over fish and repeat for the other side.
When fish is cooked through, remove from pan.
Try not to move fish too much while it's cooking!
This dish can get a bit smokey when cooking.
