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.

This was my first try at blackened catfish, and the 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper concerned me. So, to be sure my lips wouldn't catch fire, I only used 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne. Which turned out to be perfect for us. We have so much catfish on hand, and this is going to be a great alternative to the fried we have always had before. Thanks PaulaG for the recipe and great directions. Made for ZWT5 for the Saucy Senoritas.

This was good, but I, too, thought it was too spicy. My husband, who I can't usually over-spice, agreed that they were too spicy. I'll cut back on the cayenne as well next time I make it.

Really great! Easy to do either on the grill or stovetop. Nice heat, but not too much. Served with tomato jam and was out of this world! Will be trying this on shrimp and chicken, too!

I thought it was good but a little too spicy...we had to scrape off some of the seasoning after it cooked to eat it. I think I will cut back on the cayenne pepper next time.

this was real good, but next time I will cut back on the cayenne pepper. I didn't heat my skillet upside down either, but got it hot right side up. Try it, you'll like it.

I made this on Christmas eve. It was delicious. Then I made it again yesterday and the only thing is I rubbed the salt on the catfish before adding the seasonings. Very easy to make. Low calorie. Just delicious. Thank you!
