Blackened Catfish is a Cajun recipe that uses high heat and a delicious seasoning to create a black crust on the outside of the fish while leaving tender, flaky fish on the inside. This recipe has a touch of spice, but not too much, so don’t worry if you don’t like spicy food, you can still enjoy this recipe! The key to making sure the crust comes out right is to use high heat and a cast iron skillet. This recipe will create a lot of smoke, so make sure you have an exhaust vent going and don’t worry when it starts to smoke!
