Unlike a great many bloggers, I seldom post anything about food but I recently added a new entre to my dinner menu. Have always liked blackened fish so I got a hankering for some Cajun Blackened Catfish here recently so I gave it a try.
I have a natural gas grill so I took my cast iron skillet out and placed it on the grill and let it heat up for about 10 minutes. I seasoned my catfish with Evermore Cajun seasoning, melted some butter and poured it over the catfish.
I then took it out to the grill and placed it in the hot cast iron skillet cooking from 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Photo of fish below fresh right off the grill.
Well I have got to tell you, it was quite yummy. Perhaps not a dish for everyone but it was right up this southern boy’s old southern man’s ally.
And I should note that usually cooking blackened fish generates a lot of smoke because your cooking at such a high temperature. That’s why if your able, cooking outside on a grill eliminates that smoke and smell from your house…. 🙂
