Delicious Blackened Halibut

Updated: Jul 13, 2021

Looking for a different fish prep? I was getting in a rut, so found this one and it’s really good—so

simple with excellent flavor! I used a cast iron skillet, but you don’t have to! If you have one, go for it though... love the crisp!


2 tablespoons paprika

1 tablespoon dried thyme

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

4 (6 oz) halibut fillets, 1 to 1 to 1.5 inch thick

2 tablespoon butter


In a shallow dish, whisk together the paprika, thyme, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, kosher salt and cayenne. Sprinkle the halibut fillets with the seasoning mixture, pressing with your fingers to help the coating adhere.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, 2-3 minutes. Traditionally you would use a cast iron skillet, or a nonstick hard anodized aluminum skillet if you want to minimize sticking.

Add the butter to the hot skillet and swirl to coat. Add the halibut fillets. Cook 4 minutes on each side, until the fillets turn from translucent into opaque and white (it’s fine to cut a small slit and peek).

Spoon the pan juices on top of the fish, and serve.
