Catfish are plentiful in the freshwater lake where I live. This is one of my favorite recipes. Cajun seasoning, cumin and coriander spice up the fillets nicely. The colorful corn and shrimp salsa makes an excellent accompaniment. -Denise Wall, Ridgeway, South Carolina

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Cajun or blackened seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 4 catfish fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • SALSA:
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn
  • 3 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 packages (5 ounces each) frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun or blackened seasoning
  • Dash hot pepper sauce

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the Cajun seasoning, cumin and coriander; rub over catfish fillets. In a large skillet, fry fillets in oil over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove and keep warm.
In the same skillet, saute the green pepper, onion, celery, jalapeno and garlic in butter until vegetables are tender. Add the corn, tomatoes and shrimp; cook and stir for 4-5 minutes or until corn is tender. Stir in Cajun seasoning and hot pepper sauce. Serve with catfish. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
