catfish?

I searched and there are very few posts for catfish recipes in the past 4 years. It was on sale super cheap so I bought some. Now, what to do with it.... suggestions?

I have this in my files from Charski.
Cajun Blackened Catfish Paul All Recipes Charski
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
4 (4 ounce) catfish fillets, skinned
3/4 cup unsalted butter
In a shallow bowl, mix together the black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, parsley, cayenne pepper, kosher salt, oregano, and thyme until thoroughly combined. Press the catfish fillets into the spice mixture to thoroughly coat. Arrange a portable heat source outdoors, such as a butane burner or side burner of a gas grill. Melt butter in a glass or metal bowl. Light the burner, and place a large cast-iron skillet onto the burner over high heat. Pour about 1/4 cup of melted butter into the skillet; set remaining 1/2 cup of butter aside. When the butter in the skillet is smoking hot, lay the catfish fillets into the skillet. Cook until the spices are burned onto the fillets and the catfish is opaque and flaky inside, about 3 minutes per side. Don't breathe smoke from burning spices. To serve, pour remaining 1/2 cup of butter over the catfish.

That's a great suggestion. Put really bold flavors with it. I tried catfish for the first time last year and both my DH and I found the flavor so awful that we couldn't eat it.

Ironically, our cats wouldn't either!

If you find it has a strong flavor that you don't like, soak the raw fish in buttermilk or milk for up to 4 hours, in the refrigerator, then rinse and pat dry.
Pan sear a small piece and taste it first, to see if you need to "mellow" it that way
