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.

Spicy Guacamole is so yummy that you might just eat the whole bowl!  It can be an appetizer, an accompaniment to a delicious Tex-Mex dish, OR…like in my house…a meal all on it’s own.
