Grilled Blackened Catfish

I was born and raised on the east coast, my mother was born and raised in the country part of Florida.. so many people tell me that makes me southern (*laughs* I do have a slight southern drawl). So today I decided to post more of my ‘favorite foods‘.. and I’m starting off with this beautiful Grilled Blackened Catfish recipe from Chow. I grew up eating fresh, gulf caught catfish with grits and let me just tell you.. those memories are making me hungry right now (laughs). This dish is a great way to enjoy fish with a kick of creole seasoning. View the ingredient list below and click above for the recipe. Another recipe.. is on its way..

    • It’s definitely southern and something I grew up on. I think you will love it Linda. If you don’t like grits, then you can definitely try it with polenta :). I hope you have a great weekend

  1. Born in Texas, lived in Florida…people in New England can’t really place my southern accent. One thing I know for sure…your recipe is southern through and through.

    • Hey I can relate to that.. I was born here, and I still have a southern accent lol. Which I think I get from being around my grandmother and mother. There’s nothing like a southern drawl ;).. and this is definitely a southern dish that I enjoy :). I hope you have a great weekend

    • Oh I LOVE salmon, cod, etc.. they are wonderful fish. But I think catfish stole my heart at a young age lol. You definitely need to try it.. it’s soo darn good Courtney :). I hope you have a great weekend

  2. I love how comforting it is to remember recipes from my childhood. Great that you have cooked up something from your past. Your fish looks incredible. I have never had cat fish. I don’t think we can get it here in Australia.

    • It really is comforting and beings back wonderful memories. I never knew food could bring back a memory like it was yesterday.. but it definitely can. if you do get a chance to eat cat fish, I think you will love it :). I hope you have a great weekend

    • I love catfish fried too.. but I try to eat it grilled as well. I definitely think this can go in the oven. Preheat it to 375 and cook the fish. If you want the charred effect then you can place it in the broiler for a few minutes (use your own judgement on that). Let me know if you make this :). I hope you have a great weekend

    • I never had stewed catfish before. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of it. I know, we’ve grilled, baked, and fried catfish but never stewed. Thank you so much for telling me this Malou.. I am now searching for a recipe :). I hope you have a great weekend
