Blackened Fish Fillets

Can you believe school is starting already? It’s crazy how quickly life passes by and how much quicker it goes with children.

He’s quite the little boy now, not so much a baby anymore. :( But he’s still beyond adorable. Clearly I am a bit biased towards my child. :)


I love summer as there are countless opportunities for our family to partake in but by the time we accomplish these tasks, summer has flown by and we are scurrying around for last minute opportunities before the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Today was a perfect example. We took advantage of the great weather and went hiking at Forest park and went to brunch at a delicious crepe and coffee house.

Enjoying the weather, family time and good conversations- now that is what life is all about.


And of course We have to love fall for the simple fact that football begins. Are any of you football fans? College? NFL or both? I prefer NFL but we do get our college share in as we do love watching Oregon play. Go Ducks.

Whose more enveloped in the TV watching?


So even though our fabulous weather will be leaving quickly, I will continue to embrace my son still being young, innocent and a mama’s boy. Being able to avoid the hustle and bustle of last minute school shopping, fashionable clothes drama with your teenager trying to fight their way to the top of the popularity chart and worrying about their group of friends. Our biggest battle will be my creativity on outdoor adventures to keep my son busy, that’s a battle worth fighting right now. But I do believe when we reach the stage of teenage drama, I hope and pray we will have it a bit easier as boys are not as difficult as teenage girls. I’ve been there, done that….Haha my poor parents.

So with that in mind… let’s talk fish. :)


  • 3 fillets, White fish
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 cup Half & Half
  • Dash of Italian seasoning for garnish (optional)

In a medium skillet, melt butter. Once melted add garlic salt, onion onion powder and smoked paprika. Stir constantly. Once slightly thickened, add half & half to mixture and continue to stir until sauce begins to bubble. Add fish and sear on each side for approximately 3-4 minutes on medium high heat.
