Spicy Fish Seasoning Blend No. 1


Spicy Fish Seasoning Blend No. 1

You love seafood. You love spicy food. You are looking for dishes that are easy to cook and healthy, but still have a lot of flavor. 

Yes, I am a mind-reader. So, I will continue. 

You are wondering just how spicy this fish seasoning blend really is. Let’s just say it does deliver some heat, but you won’t need an extra fire extinguisher in the kitchen. You can always use a little more or less to adjust to your taste.

You are wondering if this blend was formulated by a top chef. Well you probably didn’t wonder that, but I wanted to get it in here! The answer is yes. His name is Miles Thompson and he is a highly regarded chef in Los Angeles. (And a super chill guy, too.)

You are wondering what’s in the blend. Let’s just say 15 incredibly fresh and aromatic spices, the same ones we sell to top chefs. There’s Kashmiri Chili, Tellicherry Peppercorns, Red Pepper Flakes, Coriander Seeds, Celery Seeds, White Peppercorns, and many more. 

Kosher Salt is also in the blend, so you won’t need to add any more.

You are wondering how to use this blend. So I will tell you. Just liberally apply the blend to seafood (fish, crab, shrimp, crawfish, etc.) before cooking. Then cook the seafood. Yes, it’s that easy. This blend is excellent for shrimp boils and rémoulades, too. 

And last, but not least, you might be wondering if this Spicy Fish Blend was called No. 1 for a reason. And there is good reason to wonder. We cannot explain. Some things in the universe just need to be accepted.  


Ingredients: Kosher Salt, Celery Seeds, Kashmiri Chili, Onion Powder, Tellicherry Black Peppercorns, Brown Mustard Seeds, Red Pepper Flakes, Coriander Seeds, White Peppercorns, Garlic Flakes, Cayenne Pepper, Cloves, Fennel Seeds, Thyme, Bay Leaves. Phew!

Nice flavor- not too spicy!

I have loved everything I have purchased from Reluctant Trading and the spicy fish blend is no exception. It has great flavor and is not too spicy for those who are not a fan of heat.

Delicious, top-of-the-line restaurant quality fish dish

Marinated chilean sea bass in Spicy Fish Seasoning Blend No. 1 from Reluctant Trading for a couple of hours. Pan fried the fish on high heat, skin side down first to a crispy layer, then flipped it for another sear on the other side. Served it with Atul Kochaar’s Malabar Prawn Curry sauce (see YouTube) on top (sans prawn). Enjoy!!
