Recipe by Eric Lubow
"Quick and easy blackened catfish recipe. I like to serve this over a Cajun flavored spicy white rice. Although the rice is optional, the slightly spicy Cajun flavor of the rice brings out the taste of the catfish."

Loved the "rub" and the rice was a huge hit too!
This was surprisingly amazing!
Wonderful! My wife finished her plate and that's the first time that's happened when I serve fish. Thanks!
This just didn't work for us. The flavors just seemed off.
I was not expecting this to be anything special, but after the first bite I found I was in for a surprise! My picky husband and I have very different tastes and we both LOVED this dish--he said it's one of the best things I've ever cooked (I consider myself a decent cook). I came on looking for a different recipe for blackened catfish that we use whenever we find catfish on sale, stumbled on this recipe, and I don't think we'll ever go back to the other recipe! I did only use about 3 Tbs butter and that was plenty. High marks from our house!
