Butter vs. Olive Oil

Although both tasted delicious, I give butter the slight edge here.

It came off of the cast iron skillet easier and helped the fish stay more intact.

However, if you have allergies, are watching your cholesterol, or prefer healthier fats, then using olive oil is a fine choice and tasted very similar to butter.


Which do you prefer?

Nice job explaining the process. I am new to blackening fish, but it really looks easy. Thanks.

Now I crave some blackened dolfin

The best way to sear or blacken anything is to use a 1/2 & 1/2 mixture of REAL butter & olive oil. The olive oil helps to keep the butter from burning & the butter taste is obviously better!????

Hi, just a few thoughts. Dry your fillets on paper towels to remove all excess water. I use avocado or grape seed oil from Costco in the pan with some butter to a high temp, add spices, fresh lemon, etc. dry white wine? Add fish and cook to the down side is well blackened and flip. Olive oil is actually a fairly heavy flavor and covers fish taste vs other oils. Love both alternative oils, deep fry fantastic and cheaper than peanut oil, same high flashpoint. Also, love half shell cooked fish. Try half shell redfish on the grill spiced anyway you want, low cal, never any left over!!

I’m sure you have tried it, but I cook all my blackened fish on the half shell. Im not sure why, it just seems to taste better to me
