During a Little Big Town tour stop in Miami, Kimberly Schlapman took to the sea to do some deep sea fishin’. While on the boat, Kimberly saw a shark and asked the age-old question, “do I need to be quiet?”
While on the boat, Kimberly also caught a few fish, which she later cooked up with Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum.
You can indulge in Kimberly’s blackened mahi mahi by following her simple recipe– and remember, the sharks can’t hear you, so don’t be scared when making this.
Blackened Mahi Mahi Recipe
1 tablespoon hot paprika
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 ½ teaspoons onion powder
1 ½ teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano
1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme
Grapeseed oil for pan frying
Four 6 ounce mahi mahi fillets
Lemon wedges for garnish
Combine all of the spices in a small bowl. Press a heaping tablespoon of the spice mix onto each fillet so that both sides are liberally coated. Allow the fish to sit for 15 minutes at room temperature prior to cooking.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is almost smoking, add the fillets and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with lemon juice and transfer the fillets to serving platter.
