This Cajun Catfish is a quick, easy, and delicious weeknight dinner, ready in around 20 minutes! If you don’t have garlic salt (I never do, for some reason), you can use this little recipe to whip some up from garlic powder and table salt. To avoid overcooking the fish, I sometimes take it out when it’s not quite fully cooked (e.g. a little wet inside as opposed to flaky) and cover it with aluminum foil to rest for 10 minutes, at which point it flakes easily. Keep your eye on it, since your filets may be a different thickness than mine were.
