Creole Catfish

This is a start to finish 30 minute meal perfect for any weeknight (I've made this a couple times after my long day at school). The creole seasoning is an amazing compliment to the catfish. Serve with some rice and a slice of lemon and you are in for a good night!

Towards the end of my very first day back to work, I was sitting there daydreaming about what I wanted for dinner. As I said yesterday one of my resolutions this year was to eat out less and eat home more. Now, I’ve been craving fish so I thought while not catfish?! With my snack in hand, I drove to the grocery store right after school and got some fresh catfish from the seafood department knowing I had everything else I needed at home!

Craving catfish? Pin it to save!

Your probably asking yourself… where did the creole come from??? Well, during break my cooking buddy and I went to Marcela’s Creole Cookery in Seattle for a cooking class/demonstration. It was there where I bought this huge bag of yummy creole seasoning that they cook with in the restaurant. I thought the creole seasoning would work perfectly mixed into the breadcrumb layer of my catfish dish… and I was right! This is definitely a 30 minute meal start to finish and perfect for a Monday night after your first day back to work!
