Teeccino Cajun Blackened Fish

Cajun cuisine attributes its evolution to several ethnic backgrounds, including: French, Spanish, African, and Native American. The Africans brought the skill of spices, where the French brought the technique of delicately sautéing fish. The abundance of fish available from the gulf of Mexico, combined with these ethnic cooking influences is the heart of Cajun cuisine. This particular dish not only arouses the taste buds, it also evokes a wonderful taste experience through its rich history.
