  • 3 Sticks Unsalted Butter, Melted in a Skillet

  • Tony’s Spice N’ Herbs Seasoning

  • 6 Fish Fillets (8 Ounces), Cut 1/2-Inch Thick (Redfish, Salmon, Red Snapper or Pompano)

  • Clear


  1. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over very-high heat until it is beyond the smoking stage, at least 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, dip each fillet in the melted butter so that both sides are well coated. Then sprinkle Tony’s Spice N’ Herbs Seasoning generously and evenly on both sides of the fillet.
  3. Place in the hot skillet and pour 1 teaspoon melted butter on top of each fillet (watch carefully – butter may flame up).
  4. Cook uncovered over the same heat until the underside looks charged (about 2 minutes).
  5. Turn the fish over and again pour 1 teaspoon butter on top. Cook until fish is done. Repeat with remaining fillets, serving while hot.
