Catfish is a freshwater fish, living mainly in rivers and lakes. Most of today's catfish is farm-raised, however. It may be a rather unattractive fish, sporting whiskers similar to a cat's, but the flesh is white and delicate with a mild flavor many people enjoy. Catfish is a popular fish eaten throughout the South; it is often breaded and fried. However, catfish cooked with a Cajun seasoning is also a common way of preparing it.

Preheat the broiler in the oven.

Step 3

Cover the catfish with your favorite Cajun seasonings.

Step 4

Place the fish on a broiler sheet greased with 2 tsp. olive oil or sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray.

Step 3

Grease a baking dish with 2 tsp. olive oil or nonstick cooking spray.

Pan Fry

Step 2

Pat the catfish dry with paper towels.

Step 3

Spread your choice of Cajun seasonings all over the catfish.
