Directions

  1. NOTES: You MUST use butter or oil; margarine will not work.
  2. A large cast-iron skillet works best for this, but any large non-stick skillet will work.
  3. This recipe will work with nearly any type of boneless fish fillets, but catfish seems to be one of the tastiest.
  4. This recipe produces a LOT of smoke, so make sure you have a good vent above your stove, or open some doors and/or windows.
  5. Mix all dry ingredients together.
  6. Coat fillets evenly with mixture.
  7. Heat small amount of butter or oil in skillet until hot.
  8. Place fillets in skillet.
  9. Cook 3-5 minutes on each side.
  10. Change butter or oil if it gets too black.
