Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: Fifteen Minutes
Total Time: Under an hour

½ cup butter, melted
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp chilli powder
¾ tsp cayenne
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp celery salt
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp cumin powder
¼ tsp coriander powder
2 fillets of cod fish (or your favorite fish)
*Please note that you should do this in a well-ventilated kitchen, and try not to breathe in too much of the smoke*

Preheat a cast iron pan over high heat for about 20 minutes (it should start to become a sort of gray color where the heat is applied). Mix all spices together thoroughly. Coat fish in melted butter. Evenly coat one side of the fish in spice mixture. Place fish, spice side down, in the pan. Brush butter over exposed side of fish. Coat in spices. Cook fish for about 3-5 minutes and flip (spices should be blackened). Cook for another 3-5 minutes and remove from pan. If necessary, finish cooking fish in an oven so as not to scorch the spices. Serve with your favorite lemon or wine sauce. Yield 2.
