Catfish recipe  Blackened Catfish

“Quick and easy blackened catfish recipe. I like to serve this over a Cajun flavored spicy white rice. Although the rice is optional, the slightly spicy Cajun flavor of the rice brings out the taste of the catfish.”


  • 1 cup white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • One teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • One teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • one half teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • one half teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 2 (8 ounce) fillets catfish
  • one half cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, or to taste


Blackened Catfish and Spicy Rice

  1. Bring the rice, water, Cajun seasoning, and hot pepper sauce to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. While rice is cooking, mix thyme, black pepper, cayenne pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dill weed, and lemon pepper in a bowl until well blended. Brush catfish fillets with butter and sprinkle with seasoning mixture other both sides.
  3. Heat any remaining melted butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; pan-fry seasoned catfish in butter until fish is easily flaked with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve catfish over a plate of seasoned rice. Pour leftover butter from the skillet over fish and sprinkle with lemon juice. Now pour a glass of wine and sit down to a fabulous dinner. Then after you have enjoyed this you can go here to see other delicious recipes for you to savor.
