  • 4 catfish fillets
  • Cajun seasoning blend (paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper)
  • Vegetable oil, for cooking
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat a cast-iron skillet or a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat.
Pat dry the catfish fillets with paper towels and season both sides generously with the Cajun seasoning blend.
Add enough vegetable oil to the preheated skillet to lightly coat the bottom.
Carefully place the seasoned catfish fillets in the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until the fish is cooked through and the spices create a dark and crispy crust.
While the catfish is cooking, prepare the Creole remoulade sauce. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, hot sauce, chopped parsley, chopped green onions, and capers. Stir well to combine.
Season the remoulade sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
Once the catfish is cooked, remove from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes.
Serve the Cajun blackened catfish fillets with a dollop of Creole remoulade sauce on top or on the side.
Garnish with additional chopped parsley and green onions if desired.
Enjoy the spicy and flavorful Cajun catfish with the creamy and tangy Creole remoulade sauce.
