Cook time:
Yield: 2 servings


2 Catfish Fillets (1 pound)
2 tsp Sweet Paprika
1/2 tsp dried Oregano, crumbled
1/2 tsp dried Thyme, crumbled
1/8 to 1/4 tsp Cayenne
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper, freshly ground
1 large Garlic Clove, sliced thinly
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Butter, unsalted
sliced Lemon Wedges


In a small bowl combine the paprika, oregano, thyme, cayenne, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Pat the catfish fillets dry, then sprinkle the spice mixture on both sides of the fillet coating them well.

In a large skillet, saute the garlic in the oil over moderately high heat, stirring until the garlic is golden brown. Discard the garlic then add the butter and heat the butter until the foam subsides. Add fillets and saute the catfish for about 4 minutes on each side until they flake easily with a fork. Serve blackened catfish fillets with lemon wedges.
