Used my fancy cooker. Section of pipe, rebar legs, expanded metal grate and hot water heater burner.

seasoned some of the catfish with the blackened seasoning and some with cornmeal fish fry...

The wild turkeys are thick around my place this year. They show up every time I cook outside.

Man that etouffee looks great!

Jeanie you have a way of making complex cooks look so simple. What a gift....

And now it's 11:15pm and I'm thinking about making fish stock and how I can get crawfish tails.

Thanks everybody! This is one of my favorite things to make. Reminds me of the fun I had fishing, also reminds me of my mom. This was how she taught me to make etouffee. She could cook circles around me. :-D

Absolutely wonderful cook Jeanie. That wind was howling yesterday neighbor! Nice Tom in your yard you need a turkey tag. Ive got one to fill here in ks.
Thanks Joe! Hasn't the wind been a nightmare. Good luck with your turkey hunting. I've got my tom in the freezer. :thumb:

Looks fantastic, made me start craving catfish! Good looking Turkey too lol.

Thanks Smokiemon! Someday, I want to fish on your side of the state. :-D

One of my favorite meals, Étouffée on Blackened Fish, I've never had Étouffée on Blackened and Fried, thanks for the pro tip. :-D :thumb:
Looks wonderful Jeanie and I'll bet it tastes even better than it looks.
Thanks Kevin! Glad to hear you're a fan of the dish too. I'm pretty sure etouffee slapped on anything would be good eats. :becky:

Wow, that is some outstanding looking fish! I really need to cook some up sometime soon (I think I have some walleye fillets in the bottom of the freezer somewhere).
I love walleye! I catch a few here but not many. Bet the fishing is great in your area. Thanks!

Just absolutely lovely, Jeanie! I'm pretty sure if I ate that it would be my favorite meal I've ever had.

I think I'm gonna find me a turkey disguise...:spy: :hungry:

Thanks so much Greg! lol I'll never look at the turkeys in my yard the same way. Think I'll name one Greg. :becky:

There was a place called "Catfish & More" in Muskogee OK near one of our manufacturing plants and when we'd fly in for the day the boys would load us all up and head there for lunch.
Perfect fried catfish filets and sides of fried okra and fried green tomaters.
Yum yum yum.

I don't make it to that side of the state very often, usually when passing through. Lots of great fishing lakes in that area.

Sure! I use Paul Prudhomme's recipe and tweak it to suit my taste buds. It's my favorite so far.
Thanks! :-D

1 TBS sweet paprika (I used smoked)
2 1/2 tsp salt ( I used about half)
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper (I used 3/4 tsp)
3/4 tsp white pepper
3/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
and 1/2 tsp oregano

Shoot, at first I thought they were copying the cook from my blog since it was posted a couple of months before theirs...and they also use a version of Paul's blackening seasoning mix.. http://cowgirlscountry.blogspot.com/2016/03/blackened-and-fried-catfish-smothered.html
They use a store bought seasoning though... There are just as many etouffee recipes in the world as there are gumbos and chili recipes. lol :-D
A LOT of my posts show up on Facebook and Pinterest. One of the reasons I have been marking my photos.
Thanks Terry! :thumb:
