This is one of my favorite fish dishes, very easy.

Very important note for those of you who buy spices at the dollar store like I do: DON'T use the cheap Cajun spice for this, as it's mostly salt and very little heat in this quantity. However, when I scraped it off and made my own on the fly, this was really quite tasty. The only problem I had was the lemon juice, butter, and water from the fish made kind of a soup in the frying pan, so it was more poached than fried fish.
