Blackened Catfish - Eating Clean

The big trend in getting healthy these days focuses on eating clean.  It basically means no processed foods.  Eating whole foods is not only good for you, but it is actually easier than you might think.  After winning a facebook contest for a free month at KDR Fitness, I decided to jump on the bandwagon.  Because I want to get healthier and feel better about how I look and feel, I am working hard to make dinners for our whole family that follow the clean eating guidelines. Whether you are eating clean or not, this recipe for Blacked Catfish is delish.  My sister in law Sarah shared this recipe with me when I first got married.  It is full of flavor, and it is a nice change from tilapia and haddock.
Blackened Catfish
recipe from Sarah Leland
4 catfish fillets (about 6 oz each)
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons olive oil

Heat a large cast iron or nonstick pan over medium high heat.
In a small bowl mix the spices together.
Lay your catfish fillets on a cutting board, or piece of wax or parchment paper.
Pat the dry spice mixture all over one side of the fillets.
Add the olive oil to the pan, and swirl to coat.  Let it heat for a minute, and then add the fillets, UNseasoned side down first.  Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, until fish is cooked through.
Serve seasoned side up.
This is so awesome tasting.  We have added blackened catfish to the regular rotation, it is that good.
This is what Eating Clean looks like.  Give it a try.  It is a good thing.
