Cajun Catfish Supreme (Can Substitute Trout or Even Chicken)
I tagged this as part of 2 recipes by the same chef for a game I play on Zaar. It was absolutely delicious for such a minimal effort meal. I have 2 in my family that are not big fish lovers they will eat it but it would not be their first choice for dinner and both raved about just how good this was. I am making her second recipe today and if last night was anything to go by I an in for another treat today. This dish is really such a great combination of ingredients and you end up with a restaurant quality meal which is really easy to prepare.

1 1/2lbs Catfish fillets, cut into strips
2 Teaspoons cajun blackening seasoning
4 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Cup sliced fresh mushrooms (can substitute canned, drained)
8 Tablespoons butter, divided
1/2 Cup chopped fresh parsley
1 Cup sliced green onion
1lb Peeled shrimp
2 (10 3/4 ounce) Cans condensed cream of shrimp soup


1. Sprinkle catfish with blackened seasoning.

2. Spread catfish with mayonnaise.

3. Place in shallow dish; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

4. In a large skillet, heat 4 tablespoons butter until begins to sizzle.

5. Sear fish until golden, turning once.

6. Transfer to 9×13 baking pan in a single layer.

7. In a different skillet, heat 4 tablespoons butter, cook and stir mushrooms until golden.

8. Stir in parsley, green onions and shrimp.

9. Reduce heat to low and cook until shrimp are just pink through and through.

10. Stir in soup and blend well; turn off heat.

11. Ladle over fish (or chicken) in baking dish.

12. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake 30 minutes. (Reminder if fillets are thin, reduce cooking time).

I cooked mine all on the stove top and just topped the fish with sauce, it would probably be better to do chicken in the oven to be sure that it is cooked all the way through.

I served ours over wild rice with chopped red pepper and snow peas.

Cajun Blackened Salmon
This isn’t one of the people in my recipe swap this month but she has made a couple of my recipes and reviewed them so I figured it was about time to return the favour. When I tasted the spice blend by itself it just about blew my head off, I almost adjusted amounts fearing it would be too spicy. In the end made as is and even though quite strong, when added to the fish it was the perfect balance and we really enjoyed it, but I love quite spicy, so adjust for personal taste. When added to fish and cooked it is not a blow your head off spice, but a bit more than a medium. If you want to see other recipes by this chef please click here. I served mine over pureed peas and with fat chips a really wonderful Cajun spice recipe.


4-6 Salmon fillets (I cooked with skin, personal preference.)
2 Tablespoons butter


1 Tablespoon paprika
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon onion salt
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
3/4 Tablespoon white pepper
3/4 Tablespoon black pepper
1/2 Tablespoon thyme
1/2 Tablespoon oregano
1/2 Tablespoon sage


1. Mix together spices in an airtight jar and shake until well blended.

2. Sprinkle cajun spice liberally over salmon fillets on both sides.

3. Melt butter in a large pan over medium high heat until sizzling hot.

4. Place salmon fillets in butter and cook each side 4-8 minutes, depending on the size of the fillet. Be sure to cook one whole side before flipping to blacken properly.

I made the spice mixture as stated for two fillets so I could save the rest in an empty spice jar for future use.
