This recipe for Blackened Yellowtail is inspired by the classic Cajun dish, Blackened catfish, where fish fillets are coated in spices and pan-fried in a hot skillet. This is a quick, easy, and tasty that takes the fear factor out of preparing fish at home. A species special to Japan, Yellowtail has been gracing Japanese dinner tables for centuries. Yellowtail is delicious raw in sashimi, carpaccio, poke, or ceviche. The fish is also enjoyed in cooked dishes such as shioyaki (grilled salted fish), teriyaki, and shabushabu, which bring out the flavors of the Yellowtail’s fat content.
