The Cajun flavor is great in this skillet-grilled catfish recipe. You can use this recipe with any thick fish fillet, but I suggest catfish or haddock. —Traci Wynne, Denver, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 catfish fillets (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup butter

Directions

  1. In a large shallow dish, combine the first 9 ingredients. Add catfish, 1 fillet at a time, and turn to coat.
  2. Place a large cast-iron skillet on a grill rack over medium-high heat. Melt butter in the skillet; add catfish in batches, if necessary. Grill, covered, until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 5-10 minutes on each side.
