    ninja's Note:

    I first tasted this after a local cooking demonstration, really liked it, but modified the original recipe slightly. The finished dish is beautiful, looks blackened, but has a deceptively mild taste. So mild in fact that I would add Cajun seasoning and increase the cayenne if you want more of that Cajun heat. Cooks in 10 minutes under the broiler.

      This is the first time that I have had real catfish. We can always get Basa which is a type of catfish but it doesn't compare with this cat fish. I am so pleased that I used your recipe it was delicious. I used fresh oregano, hot paprika and a bit more cayenne. Served with a slice of lemon
