Description

With a combination of spiciness and earthiness from Cajun seasoning, tanginess from a squeeze of lemon, and nuttiness from browned butter, this easy fish recipe is guaranteed to put your tastebuds in overdrive. Cooks with Soul likes to make it with their Soul Dust and Blackening Rub, available on their website, but you can also use other favorite blends. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Marrekus and Krysten Wilkes of Cooks with Soul.

    Directions

    1. Lay out catfish fillets in a single layer on a work surface and sprinkle with all-purpose seasoning on both sides; press seasoning into fish.
    2. Heavily coat the top side of the fish with blackening seasoning. Allow seasoning to sit until it begins to soak into the fish, about 10 minutes. Flip the fish over and repeat.
    3. Heat a large cast-iron or heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat until you see a little smoke coming from it, 1-2 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil and heat until shimmering but not smoking, about 1 minute; then add 2 tablespoons butter. Be sure the exhaust fan is turned on.
