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.
Catfish fillets are coated with a steak seasoning and cornmeal mixture, and fried to golden perfection.
There's no better fish to showcase the spices and flavors of Louisiana's Cajun country than catfish. Serve with slaw and sliced tomatoes.
When you find a spice mixture you like, double or triple the recipe, and save the extra to use with other seafood (such as shrimp), chicken, pork, or even potatoes.
A combination of a few pantry spices lends authentic Cajun flavor to catfish. The SautÃ©ed Corn and Cherry Tomatoes are delicious served alone as a side dish or as a relish spooned over the catfish.
