This cod is loaded with flavour and not salt using a homemade blackened spice mix. The creole sauce add even more flavour and if you close your eyes you could be in a little restaurant somewhere in New Orleans. Cast iron pans work best for blackening.
4 cod fillets
1 teaspoon/5ml canola oil
1 heaping tablespoon/30ml paprika
1 teaspoon/5ml salt
1 teaspoon/5ml garlic powder
1 teaspoon/5ml onion powder
½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (add less if you want it less spicy)
2 teaspoons/10ml black pepper
½ teaspoon/2ml dried thyme
½ teaspoon/2ml dried oregano
Mix the salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, black pepper, thyme and oregano in a small bowl.
