Blackened Snapper BLT

You’ve got to have a really hot skillet to make this work. It also helps if you cook it outdoors since searing three kinds of pepper in a hot skillet is a lot like breathing in pepper spray. If you have to do it inside, make sure you allow for plenty of ventilation. There’s a decent chance that you smoke alarm may go off! Try this with salmon also.
