Blackened Catfish

Posted by moderndaygourmet on August 31, 2007

I got this from Cooking Light.  I usually triple the spice mix (or more) and save the rest for the next time so I don’t have to mix it every time I cook this.

2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (6-ounce) farm-raised catfish fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of fish with the paprika mixture.
Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add fish; cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
