Cajun Broiled Catfish

This recipe makes a lot more Cajun seasoning than you'll need for the catfish. Store the extra in a glass jar and sprinkle on everything from eggs to steak to veggies.
  • 2 T. cayenne pepper
  • 2 T. chili pepper
  • 2 tsp. white pepper
  • 2 tsp. parsley
  • 2 tsp. thyme
  • 1 T. garlic salt
  • 1 T. paprika
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 lb. catfish fillets

Combine all spices and herbs in a container and blend thoroughly. If you have a spice grinder, run the mixture through it several times to achieve a nearly homogenous mixture. Store the Cajun seasoning blend in a glass jar.

Lightly spray a broiler pan with cooking spray. Place the catfish fillets on the pan and sprinkle generously with the Cajun seasoning. Broil 4-6 inches from the heating element for 4 minutes. Flip the fillets and apply another generous coating of Cajun seasoning (skip this step if a milder taste is desired). Broil for another 3-4 minutes or until fish is opaque.
