Brown Bag Catfish

A blackened catfish seasoned with our Cajun Seasoning which gives it some sweet heat and a perfect blend of selected herbs and spices. Then cooked and served in a brown bag.

Prep Bags:

Lightly spray the inside of 4 brown bag with olive oil spray. The bags should be slightly translucent after spraying.  Cut butcher’s twin in 4 8-inches long strings. Set aside.

Make Lemon Butter:

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon oil, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, and 1/3 cup lemon juice.

Prep the Catfish:

Brush the lemon sauce over the fillets and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons TWS Cajun seasoning. Place a lemon slice and a dill sprig on each fillet. 

Gently slide a fillet into each paper sack. 

Gather the mouth of the bag and secure it with the twine.

Bake the Brown Bag Catfish:

Bake in a preheated 350°F for 10 minutes. Transfer the bags to a dinner plate. For maximum effect, slice open the bags at the table right before serving letting the stream waft up and seduce your dinner guest.

Serve:

Serve with a healthy green vegetable. I need to caution you will want to know your dinner guest. Blackened seasoning can pack a punch. If you have someone who does not like heat omit the Cajun seasoning and serve with the lemon sauce only.
