Blackened Cajun Catfish (Gluten-Free)

Blackening is a really fun way to cook fish. Nothing seems to beat the bold flavor that comes from a perfectly seared crust. Blackening fish on a cast-iron skillet creates intense heat and smoke so always work in a well-ventilated kitchen.

The rub in this recipe is one of many variations on a classic Cajun rub and is also perfect for chicken, beef steaks, or even vegetables. You can mix it up by serving different fish; snapper and swordfish would also hold up really well. Serving fish with lemon not only cuts the intense flavor of the spices, but also gives the fish a refreshing bite.

Ingredients:
4 firm catfish fillets, 6-8 ounces each
½ cup olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1 large lemon, cut into 4 wedges
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon ground red pepper
2 teaspoons cracked peppercorns
1 teaspoon coarse salt

Directions:
Combine all spices to create a rub and spread in a shallow pan. Set aside.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet until very hot, about 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, rinse and pat dry fish. Generously coat both sides of each steak with oil and lay in the spice mixture. Turn to thoroughly cover both sides.

Place two steaks in the heated skillet over medium-high and drizzle lightly with oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes and turn. Drizzle with a little more oil and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, depending on thickness of fish. Remove cooked fish.

Add additional oil if necessary and repeat with remaining steaks.

Serve with fresh lemon juice, one wedge per steak.

Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as ...

No, Armour has always been gluten free. The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage. That has long since resolved. Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015. They increased the price! Now it is comparable to syn...

You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight. As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roomm...

Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he fou...
