What you will need for the Blackened Cajun Catfish:
  • 4 Catfish Filets
  • Cajun Seasoning ( I used Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning)
  • 2-3 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Heat olive oil in a large cast iron skillet on medium high heat. Sprinkle both sides of catfish filets with Cajun seasoning. Use as much or as little as you like. Place in the hot pan and fry for 4 minutes on each side until browned and crispy. Remove from pan and place on lined baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for another 3-4 minutes.

I found this fantastic chipotle chili pepper sauce at my local grocery store which made an absolutely perfect finish to this dish.

You of course can make your own from scratch, but this bottled sauce is so yummy that you will want to spice everything up with it!

This recipe is a embellished version of the recipe that I grew up eating. My mother made this fairly often for us as children and more times than not, it was served with a slice of bread covered with butter and sweet tea to wash it all down. If you are a Southerner, you understand. It is a simple recipe that can be made in a short amount of time and can "Feed an Army" especially one that is on a budget. I have made this recipe quite a lot over the years and have used all kinds of ground meats including turkey and venison. Texas Hash is made to be spicy so if you do not like the amount of heat, you can always adjust the seasoning to your liking.

Instructions
  1. Prepare your all of the ingredients.
  2. Using a Dutch Oven, sauté the onions, garlic, and celery in the jalapeno infused olive oil until translucent. Add the ground beef. Cook until browned. (If you cannot find jalapeno infused oil, just use plain extra virgin olive oil. I made my own infused oil.)
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the Dutch Oven pan. Tomatoes, frozen mixed veggies, rice, Worcestershire sauce, Cajun seasoning, and chicken stock.
  4. Stir all ingredients together and allow to simmer for about 15-20 minutes on medium low with the lid on, until all liquid has been evaporated and the rice is tender.
  5. This is what your Hash should look like once it is done.
