In the spirit of this haunted day I did a little Blackened Catfish. A little spicy fish on a cloudy Fall night sounded good.
I wanted to cook this dish in the cast-iron skillet to get a little more crispiness to it. This was my first time using a skillet.
Before I started cooking the fish I wanted to make some fried onions to put on top. I cut some onion super thin and then battered them. Egg wash, flour mixed with spices.
By the time the onions were done, after just a few minutes, I figured the skillet would be good and hot. With the fish sizzling away I started making some spinach.
I let the fish cook for about 4 mins on each side and pulled the filets off the grill. I put the fish over the spinach and then the onions on top of the fish. I love lemon and tartar sauce with seafood, so I put a little on the side.
Then I dug in!! So good!
