Fish, Cajun Spiced (D/P, KLP, TNT)
Source: "500 All Time Great Recipes" (ISBN 1-84081-433-0)
Serves: 4 (easily doubled/tripled etc)

Cajun Spice Blend:
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic salt (I used 1/2 tsp. each salt and garlic powder)

6 tbsp. butter or margarine
4 filets from firm fish (they say cod, I've used plaice and salmon)
1/2 red pepper, sliced
1/2 green pepper, sliced
1/2 yellow pepper, sliced
Fresh thyme sprigs to garnish (optional)

Mix all herbs and spices in a bowl. Dip fish fillets in spice mix to coat lightly.

Heat 1/2 the butter in a pan and fry the peppers until softened. Remove peppers and keep aside.

Add rest of butter or margarine to pan. Fry fish for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until cooked and browned. Do not worry if you double recipe and pan gets full of spice mix - it adds to the flavour.

Serve garnished with pepper strips.

Poster's Notes: Suggestion: serve with sweet potato puree and grilled tomatoes (Try this. Really good.)
