Catfish with Shrimp Salsa Recipe

Publisher Photo
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
