  1. Mix it up. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Hard, right?

Directions for Fish

  1. Brine filets in 1 teaspoon of salt to one cup of water in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
  2. Shake dry, and coat liberally with seasoning mix.
  3. (Directions for my oven.) Space filets on broiler pan to place directly beneath elements, and put rack on the second to top slot.
  4. From a cold oven, broil on low 5 minutes on the first side, and 2 on the other. Freaking awesome.
