Preheat 2 small cast-iron skillets over high heat until hot, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet or griddle
over high heat. Preheat the grill or a grill pan
Toss the onions and peppers with 1 teaspoon of the blackening seasoning and some salt and black pepper. Add the oil to the large skillet and cook the onions
and peppers, about 2 minutes. While the vegetables are cooking, dust
both sides of each fillet with salt, black pepper and the remaining blackening seasoning, just enough to coat. Flip the vegetables and continue cooking until lightly browned, about 3 minutes longer, and then push to one side of the skillet. Cook the fish on the other side of the skillet, 2 minutes per side, flipping once halfway through. Divide the fish
and vegetables between the 2 small hot skillets. There should be a lot of steam and sizzling!
Dip the limes in blackening seasoning, grill 1 to 2 minutes, and then squeeze lime
juice over each fillet.
Serve the fajitas
in the cast-iron skillets with an oven mitt (very hot!). Assemble in the warmed tortillas, and top with pico de gallo, shredded cheese
, lettuce and tomatoes
, if desired.
