Cajun Catfish over Sautéed Onions and Tomatoes

np-catfish - Cajun Catfish

Well seasoned Catfishfilets, pan seared over sautéed onions and tomatoes

  • 4 Catfish Filets about 6oz Each
  • 2 Large Yellow (Spanish) Onions Thinly Sliced
  • 2 Large Tomatoes Thinly Sliced
  • Fresh Cilantro Chopped (about ¼ Cup)
  • Salt
  • Oil

Seasoning

  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Basil
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper

Method

Coat each catfish filet with seasoning mix on both sides. Heat a sauté pan with about 1 tbsp of oil. Once oil is hot place the catfish upside down and cook for about two minutes until golden brown. Flip fish over in pan and remove from heat. Remove fish from pan carefully and hold.

In a new sauté pan, heat 1 tbsp of oil and cook onions with a dash of salt over medium heat, stirring often. Once onions are translucent, add tomatoes and stir. Cover the bottom of the pan with onions and tomatoes.

Place the catfish over the onion mixture and cover. Reduce heat to low. As the onions and tomatoes cook down, be careful not to burn. Once fish is completely cooked and firm, remove pan from heat and add cilantro. Serve up hot and enjoy!

Goes great with some “dirty rice” or potatoes!

I am not a big fan of fish but that fish looks so good. I am really thinking about trying to cook this fish. Thank you for all you are doing, and for sharing your recipes with us.
