Cajun Style Blackened Catfish

Cajun Style Blackened Catfish created by Kitchen_Kouture

This is a recipe handed down to me by my father, and is one of my favorite Cajun-style dishes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I am currently attempting to figure out a way to cook this dish on the George Foreman Grill; stay tuned for the results!

directions

  • NOTES: You MUST use butter or oil; margarine will not work.
  • A large cast-iron skillet works best for this, but any large non-stick skillet will work.
  • This recipe will work with nearly any type of boneless fish fillets, but catfish seems to be one of the tastiest.
  • This recipe produces a LOT of smoke, so make sure you have a good vent above your stove, or open some doors and/or windows.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together.
  • Coat fillets evenly with mixture.
  • Heat small amount of butter or oil in skillet until hot.
  • Place fillets in skillet.
  • Cook 3-5 minutes on each side.
  • Change butter or oil if it gets too black.

    This was amazing. My husband catches a lot of fish, and this is our new favorite fish recipe. My husband made a big batch of the seasoning, added a small amount of cayenne for kick and stored it in a ziplock bag for more meals to come. It was not to salty for us, just right. Thanks for posting. We served it with broccolli and http://www.food.com/recipe/rodriguez-dipping-butter-487346

    This recipe is great! The only thing I did different is to double the dry ingredients and (excluding the parsley flakes you can add then to the fish before cooking) mixing them in a shaker for the next time.

    This was fast and delicious! No funky ingredients and wonderful flavor. A bit too salty for my family's taste, but other than that, we'll definitely make this again. Thank you!

    This is a delicious recipe! I thought at first that the seasoning mixture wasn't going to be enough for both the fillets I bought, but it was just the perfect amount. It was very flavorful with just enough spiciness to give it a kick. I needed to cook the fish a little longer than the 3-5 minutes, but overall, this recipe doesn't take much time at all. My husband loved it. I'll definitely make this one again.
