This dish was part of a meal that was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Southern”. I have a few friends from the South and I have been there a couple times so I had a few different options for dishes. The hard part was trying to make something that I have never had before. Then I realised that I have never had blackened catfish even though I have seen it on a bunch of menus. How could I not like this? Catfish and Cajun spices? Sign me up!
