Barlow's Blackened Catfish

A fresh summer catch from the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, bluefish has a rich, fine-textured flesh that makes it perfect for baking, broiling, or grilling.

Ingredients Preparation
  • Produce
    Garlic powder (2 teaspoons)
    Lemon pepper (2 teaspoons)
  • Seafood
    Catfish, fillets (1 pound)
  • Condiments
    Italian-style salad dressing (1 cup)
  • Cooking & Baking
    Cayenne pepper (2 teaspoons)
    Pepper (2 teaspoons)
    Salt (2 teaspoons)
  • Dairy
    Butter (2 tablespoons)

    1  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.


    2 In a shallow, medium bowl, mix cayenne pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper.


    3 Brush both sides of catfish fillets with butter. Rub fillets with the cayenne pepper mixture on both sides.


    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.


    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.
