  1. Blackened Catfish - make a dry rub of thyme, cayenne, black pepper, salt, garlic and onion powder and paprika....get a nice hot pan, melt some butter and place the fish in the pan. Serve over rice with a squeeze of lemon. collard greens if available

    1. Hi, Susmita --

      Our favorite way to eat fish is to season it (usually just salt and pepper for us), then dipped in a little flour (after you remove it from the flour, pat it lightly to knock off all of the extra flour) then just cook it in a skillet on top of the stove -- skin side down first (if it has skin), then turn over to brown on the other side. If the fish is a little thick, put a cover over to trap some of the heat, then remove the cover to finish browning.

        dear sunshine,
        No oil in skillet ?

        1. re: susmita

          Just a little -- and it could be any type of oil -- or butter.

          (My favorite is about half butter and half oil -- then you get a nice butter flavor without as much smoking and it doesn't burn quickly)

      2. Dear all,

        a very good Crunchy Oven Fried Fish Recipe for you .
