Cajun Catfish


Obviously, I'm not done with New Orleans flavors yet! One of my closest friends, all the way back to college, came over for dinner. We were looking for a healthy dinner, so I immediately thought of fish and veggies of course. Whole Foods had some fresh, local catfish that looked outstanding. I bought about 1.25 pounds, which served 3 nice servings (can't wait to have the 3rd for lunch this week).

This was super easy to make - definitely give it a shot. You could switch out the fish no problem, and even the seasoning blend. To make this a simple weeknight meal, I bought some of the prepared vegetables from Whole Foods which I love. Enjoy! Servings: 3 (6oz-8oz servings) Ingredients: fresh catfish filets (I cut mine into 3 servings) ~3-4 tb cajun seasoning (I eyeballed this, so use as much as you want) ~2 tb garlic chive butter (purchased from seafood counter at Whole Foods) ~1 cup flour ~1tb vegetable oil juice of lime to top fish, optional Directions: Mix the cajun spice into the flour in a shallow bowl. Dredge the fish on both sides in the flour mixture and set aside. Heat the oil and butter in a saute pan over high heat. Brown one side of the fish for approximately 4 minutes. Turn the fish and cook on the other side for about 4-5 minutes, turning the heat down to medium-low after both sides are brown. Top with juice of a lime or lemon and serve with vegetables.
