Barlow's Blackened Catfish Recipe
- 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
- 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons pepper
- 1 pound catfish fillets
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup Italian-style salad dressing
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
step 2: In a shallow, medium bowl, mix cayenne pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
step 3: Brush both sides of catfish fillets with butter. Rub fillets with the cayenne pepper mixture on both sides.
step 4: Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until really hot. Add fillets, and fry approximately 2 minutes on each side, until slightly blackened.
step 5: Arrange blackened fillets in a single layer in the prepared baking dish, and coat with Italian-style salad dressing. Bake 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
