I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Blackened Basa with Sriracha Tartar Sauce

No bland fish dish here.  This one will get you right in the taste buds!

4 basa fillets
olive oil
hot sauce (sriracha or tabasco)

1  1/2 tbsps paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 tsps onion powder
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder


Sriracha Tartar Sauce:
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tsps lemon juice
1 tsp sweet relish
1/4 tsps onion powder
1/2 tsp sriracha

Cover your baking sheet with foil. It'll make cleanup a whole lot easier. Brush the foil with 1-2 tbsps olive oil. Place the fillets on the foil. Mix 2 tbsps olive oil with 1/2 tsp hot sauce and brush it on the fillets.
Mix the rub ingredients together and sprinkle evenly over fillets. Rub in using your fingers or the back of a spoon. I used all the rub on these 4 fillets, nothing leftover.
You can prepare up to this point and refrigerate until later.
I let the flavours sit for 6 hours.
When ready  heat the oven to 425 F and spray fillets lightly with Pam cooking spray. Bake 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Mix the tartar ingredients together
and serve.
