Yield: 4 servings


4 Catfish Fillets, (4 - 5 ounces each)
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp ground Sage
1/2 tsp ground Cumin
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp ground Cayenne
1/2 tsp Olive Oil
Lemon Slices
nonstick Cooking Spray


Put paprika, sage, cumin, garlic powder, sugar, salt, cayenne and onion powder in a 1-gallon zip-lock bag. Close bag and shake until well blended. Put 1 catfish fillet in bag at a time and shake until lightly coated.

Coat large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add oil and heat over medium-low heat until hot. Add catfish fillets, skinned side up, and cook 4 to 5 minutes until lightly blackened. Carefully turn with spatula. Cook 4 to 5 minutes longer, or until catfish feels firm and is opaque at the thickest part.

Serve blackened catfish with lemon slices.
