Submitted by randilicious


2 tsp cayenne pepper 2 tsp lemon pepper
2 tsp garlic powder (or fresh) 1 lb catfish fillets
½ c. Italian salad dressing 2 tbsp butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  2. In a shallow, medium bowl, mix cayenne pepper, lemon pepper, & garlic powder.
  3. Brush both sides of catfish fillets with butter. Rub fillets with the pepper mixture on both sides.
  4. Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until really hot. Add fillets, & fry approximately 2 minutes on each side until slightly blackened.
  5. Arrange blackened fillets in a single layer in the prepared baking dish, & coat with Italian dressing. Bake 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
  6. Serve over freshly steamed rice & lightly sauteed vegetables on the side.
