  1. In a medium shallow bowl, combine all spices through dried thyme. Place 6 tablespoons melted butter in a medium shallow bowl. Dip each fish filet in melted butter and then coat lightly in spice mixture.
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat until hot. Add 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sear 4 fish filets at once, about 2-3 minutes on each side, until spices are dark and crusty and the fish is cooked through. Remove to a plate. Add remaining tablespoon of butter to skillet repeat. Serve with lemon wedges.

Note: In lieu of the spices, you can use a pre-made blackening spice mix.
