Connie's Blackened Fish

1 Tbsp. paprika
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. oregano

Mix spices in a bowl. This will coat about one pound of fish. Pour a little olive oil in the bottom of a frying pan and place over high heat. Let the oil get quite hot. Dip the fish fillets in the spice mixture, coating well on both sides and place in the hot oil.

Fry for about 2 minutes; turn over and fry for about 2 minutes more. Add more oil, if necessary. The New Orleans style is to let the fish get black. Nicely browned is good enough.
