Blackening is an incendiary cooking technique that fuses spicy dry seasonings into a crispy, intensely flavored, buttery crust. It was originally used on fish, but the technique has been applied to all manner of meat, poultry, seafood, and vegetables.
The late and legendary Louisiana chef, Paul Prudhomme, invented the technique in the mid-80s, and rocked the food world for a loop that has rippled through popular food culture for more than 30 years.
