I have also tried this recipe with other fish, and any white fish works beautifully . .Catfish, though, is especially good when blackened. . .serve with sweet pickles. . .
–catfish fillet (medium, one-half pound, size of 2 decks of cards)
–paprika (1 teaspoon)
–garlic powder (1 teaspoon)
–minced onion (1 tablespoon)
–oregano (1 teaspoon)
–dill (1 teaspoon)
–salt and pepper to taste (be sure to be generous with the salt)
–lemon juice (3 squirts)
–clam juice (one-eighth cup)
1 – Place the catfish in a covered baking dish. Drench with lemon juice. Add clam juice. Then sprinkle with each spice in the list above–everything 1 teaspoon except onion, which is 1 tablespoon.
2 – Microwave on high for 6 minutes.
3 – Serve hot.
