You can carry on all you want to about blackening your catfish in a red hot skillet, smoking up the house and the back yard, but I have an easier way to blacken it and a might tasty one too it is! Mix spices together and generously sprinkle both sides of the catfish, which have been rinsed and patted try.
Sauté garlic in oil over medium heat until golden brown. Remove.
Add butter and heat until foam subsides; sauté catfish for 4 minutes on each side until cooked through. Transfer to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
TIP: This catfish is very good served cold in a salad.
