Jim Dennett’s “Slap Ya Mama” Baked Fillets

We were blessed to share a day of wade fishing recently with Jim Dennett and Capt. Tricia of Skinny Water Adventures at Port Mansfield. Jim and I yakked all day about fishing and the various ways to prepare your catch. Turns out Jim is from Monroe, LA and loves to cook seafood as much as fishing the Lower Laguna. We tried one of his recipes and found it delicious. We hope you do too.

2lbs fresh fillets (trout, redfish, flounder; they're all good)
Butter flavored non-stick cooking spray
"Slap Ya Mama" seasoning (HEB Plus Stores)
2 Tbsp fresh chopped dill weed

Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
Rinse fillets and check for bones.
Spray liberally with butter flavored cooking spray.
Sprinkle lightly with "Slap Ya Mama" and chopped dill.
Turn fillets and repeat.

Bake at 375 until flaky, but not dry, about 15-20 minutes depending thickness.

Serve 'em up right from the oven with Cajun dirty rice, steamed asparagus, and garden fresh tomato slices topped with crumbles of Gorgonzola cheese.

Awesome! Serves four adult seafood lovers.
