Cajun Catfish Recipe


Home | Recipes | C

Ingredients:

  • Fillets
  • 1 Lemon ; juice of
  • 1 Sliced hab or your favorite fresh pod; (sans seeds)
  • 1 tb A-1 sauce
  • 1/2 ts Black pepper
  • 1/2 ts Fresh ginger
  • Enough water to puree
  • 1 Stick butter; (preferably not margarine, but butter)
  • Salt to taste
  • Favorite chile powder to taste

Directions:

Here's one that's really good on panfish, never tried it on catfish.
 
Wash fillets well with two or more rinses of water, then wash again in salt water.
 
Pat fillets dry with paper towels, then set back or put back in fridge. Add the juice of one lemon, one sliced hab or your favorite fresh pod (sans seeds), a Tbs A-1 sauce, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, and just enough water to puree in the blender.
 
Melt a stick of butter (preferably not margarine, but butter) in the microwave with above puree until boiling starts. Paint immediately on fillets with basting brush. Salt to taste and sprinkle with favorite chile powder to taste, while butter mix is still warm. On well-oiled grill, grill each side to cook fish completely over medium heat (thin fillets work well but the chef has to take care not to let it fall apart). A lot of the flavoring falls off, but less if the fillet is dry when basted. With panfish it only takes a few minutes, just have to check for flakiness(sp?) on the catfish. When do we eat??
