How do you “blacken” foods?

Dear Cooks,

I do most of the cooking and like seafoods. I would like to know what is used to make blacken Salmon and can it be used on other fish like Tuna steaks or Grouper?


Dear Manny,

Yes, you can definitely blacken tuna and grouper, chicken as well.  Here is a recipe of Rachael’s that includes Blackened Chicken and will give you the recipe for the spices used to make the coating and the technique for blackening.
