Eating with Prissy: Blackened Fish & Veggies

*Disclaimer: I didnt think about documenting this recipe until I kinda already started cooking, which happens alot.*
You may not know this about me, but I’m a country girl at heart. My grandmother would take me fishing at least 3-4 times a week. I grew up catching, cleaning, and eating my own fish for the most part (I have pictures that I may share with you in another post). Alot of times, we’d have fried catfish for dinner, which is still a favorite of mine. Nowadays, I don’t do alot of frying at home, but catfish remains on my menu. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy eating salmon, halibut, and chilean seabass just as much, but at home I always revert back to catfish! I love to blacken just about any type of fish or poultry. Here’s my take on blackened catfish. Hope you enjoy!
Blackening Seasoning:
1 tbsp of garlic powder
1 tbsp of onion powder
1 tbsp of black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp of Lawry’s seasoning salt
1 tbsp of paprika
1/2 tbsp of cayenne pepper
*Mix all ingredients in a small bowl, and set aside*
2 fish fillets
olive oil
*Cut up all of your veggies*

Add some olive oil to a saute pan (or cast iron skillet), then add your veggies. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Lightly saute until softened. Remove from the pan & set aside.

Rinse your fish fillets, then pat dry.

Slather one side with butter. This gives your blackening seasoning something to stick to. 

Add both fillets to the pan, seasoned side down

Butter & season the other side. Flip the fillets over & continue to blacken the uncooked side. The fillets will finish cooking in the oven.

Add some of the veggies to a baking dish & lay the fish on top

Add the remainder of the veggies to the top of the fish. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees 

Serve with rice & enjoy!
 Talk to you soon,

    You already know I will be testing this out for the fam this week! Fish and seafood are the only “meat” I eat right now and I am considering cutting them out, but I am too lazy to plan my meals properly right now to do that! Lol The fam still eats eer’thang so I will be trying this and the previous recipe soon! Maybe today:) lol I loved some catfish growing up. Granny cooked fish every Friday, but not catfish. We went to Po Folks for all you can eat:) lmao I know it wasn’t as fresh as catching it yourself!
