White fish has a very mild taste which is delicious even without any special seasonings (see my plain white fish recipe).  But sometimes I crave a different kind of white fish – the one loaded with spices!  So when I feel like having a spicy white fish, I turn to this super-easy Cajun White Fish Recipe.

Cajun Whitefish Recipe changes the color of the white fish from plain white to gorgeous spice-rub brown, and it changes its taste from mild to complex and spicy.  Making Cajun white fish is very easy – just rub the fish with the store-bought Cajun or Creole seasoning, and pan-fry as usual.

Cajun White Fish Recipe


  • 1 lb white fish fillets
  • 2 tbsp Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 1 tbsp oil

How To Make Cajun White Fish

  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Rub the white fish fillets all over with the Cajun seasoning.
  3. Put the fish on a frying pan (skin side down), make sure the fillet fillets are not touching.
  4. Cook the white fish for 3 minutes, then carefully flip the fillets with a spatula and cook for 2 more minutes (or until the fish flakes easily with a fork).
  5. Remove from heat and serve.

    I will definitely be cooking this again.
    I added 2 tsp of garlic granules to the cajun, then fried with a knob of butter a little oil.
    Served it with a fresh mixed salad and a few new potatoes :)
