Welcome to OFF! Glad to see some diversity. You wouldn't want to share technique and recipes would you? That would be great. I have never tasted catfish,fresh or restaurant. :confused: Maybe a good recipe will change my mind and my upturned nose...;) Thanks. Be safe.

Raincatcher, one of the more memorable fish dinners I've ever had was at a restaurant in Ashland. Blackened catfish with jalapeño sauce. It was truly awesome.

blackened catfish usually consists of a dry rub containing chili powder, black pepper garlic salt and paprika (thats my mix but there are varying combinations) but i dont know how much i just kinda throw it together. anyways take that mix and rub generously on both sides of the filet. let sit in fridge for at least 15-20 min. now very important!!! no oil in the pan, you dont want to fry you want the spice rub to blacken... i like cast iron but a non-stick pan will do fine. get it hot and cook filet about 5 min. on each side, remember you're looking for a blackening effect here.

next slop that sucker down next to some dirty rice (red beans and rice) and dig in but remember to make enough for seconds ;)
