Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
¾ teaspoon White pepper
½ teaspoon Thyme
1 tablespoon Paprika
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 teaspoon Onion powder
¾ teaspoon Black pepper
½ teaspoon Oregano
2½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Red pepper (cayenne)
6 Catfish Fillets

Cook outdoors: Preheat cast iron skillet on outdoor-cooker at least 10 minutes, until a white ash forms in skillet bottom. Thoroughly combine seasoning mix in a small bowl. Dip fillets in melted butter so that both sides are well coated. Then sprinkle seasoning mix generously and evenly on both sides of fillets, putting it in by hand. Place in hot skillet and add 1 tablespoon of butter over the top of fillets.

(Caution - butter will flame.) Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side until charred. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
