my crave for blackened catfish

4 catfish filets. boneless and skinless
one quarter cup cajun spice blend
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1. pre-heat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit
2. heat a large fry pan over high heat about 10-15 minutes
3. brush filets on both sides with oil. sprinkle cajun seasoning generously
4. place into heated pan and pour melted butter directly over filets for
2-3 minutes until blackened
5. place pan into pre-heated oven and roast for 5 minutes

serve with creole rice

living in jakarta with all kinds of food you can get makes me spoiled rotten. my hands and fingers surely are stiff from years of cooking, a hobby that i tended to grow up since being a volunteer working at the kitchen in a retirement home.

being able to cook. one of the perks living abroad.
