Seriously! This is the easiest blackened pan seared snapper you will ever make. This is also amazing. I served it with haricots vert topped with fried shallots. I will share that now.
Take a sauté pan over medium heat. Add in 2-3 tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is very hot (how do you know it's very hot did you ask? Great questions - when the oil starts to move to the side of the pan) Toss in thinly sliced shallots and cook until crispy. Remove from pan. Keep oil in the pan. When ready to make the haricots vert add them to the hot pan with some garlic, salt and pepper. Cook until tender, remove from pan and top with shallots.
Next tip! Did you know most seafood departments will provide the seasonings. Yes, that is true. We got this snapper at Whole Foods and they seasoned for us. How easy was that...
As I mentioned above Whole Foods seafood department seasoned our snapper with blackening seasonings. They have others as well. Just ask. If you forget to ask then season your fish.
Heat a sauté pan with oil and let it get hot. Once hot add snapper in the pan skin side down for 3 minutes. Flip over and cook the other side for 3 minutes. Remove from pan, plate, enjoy!
