Don't buy those spice jars in the super market. You can make delicious blackened fish easily.
• 1 Tbsp soy sauce
• 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
• 2 skinless mahi mahi steaks, each about 6 ounces (you may use other sustainable fish)
• Freshly ground black pepper
First, open the windows and turn on the exhaust fan.
Heat a 12 inch skillet over high heat for about 10 minutes until it smokes. While it's heating, combine the soy sauce and 1 1/2 Tablespoons of the lime juice.
Grind pepper and press into both sides of the fish steaks. Use lots of pepper.
Place fish steaks in the pan and brown on one side, about 3 minutes. Turn over and brown the other side.
Turn off the heat and immediately pour the soy/lime mixture over the fish. Turn the fish over several times until the liquid evaporates. This happens quickly.
Sprinkle with the remaining lime and serve immediately.
