    PaulaG's Note:

    I have always been a fan of catfish. We lived in Baton Rouge, LA several years ago and I became a fan of blackened catfish. This is a wonderful recipe that is quick to fix.

      I loved the flavor of this. I would have been disappointed had it not been spicy. It was just right. The only thing is that I found it difficult not to burn the outside of the fish to a crisp had I left it in the pan for the recommended time. Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong?

      I thought this was a good recipe. I generally like spicy things, but I thought 1 tsp was just a bit much for the rub. If I make this again, I would reduce it to 3/4 tsp. Thanks for posting, it was first time cooking catfish, easy and yummy. EDIT: I used the leftover catfish in burritos the next day and they were great!

      Out of the catfish world! Nice bite, but not too much. We have a glasstop stove, so I cooked in a hot skillet for the cooking time suggested. Delish. Made for an Epicurean Queen for ZWT5. My pic isn't as nice as nimz, so I'll just post to the forum. Will certainly make again.
