A note about serious food allergies

“Blackened” may sound like something you want to avoid in cooking: it can denote charred, burned, destroyed, inedible, you're ordering pizza might as well give up now. But that's not the case here! With fish especially, blackened means adding incredible flavor and hints of heat, elevating our sea friends with fins to the height of delicious magic with just one dusting. And we made it crispy, too? Put down the pizza menu.
