Cajun Bacon-Catfish Casserole Baked on the Grill
I grew up on a cattle farm where I did a lot of fishing. Needless, to say I like to eat beef and fish. With that said, fish in my area cost more per lb than steak with the exception of catfish. So, let’s make a Bacon Potato Catfish Casserole!
I was looking for catfish recipes and came across the uscatfish.com website which is sponsored by The Catfish Institute. They have dozens of recipes and it looks like they are an organization that promotes the US Catfish farming industry.
- 1 Catfish fillets
- 3 pieces of bacon, fried and chopped
- 1 teaspoon Tennessee Whiskey Cajun-Blackening Seasoning
- 1 1/3 cups frozen hash browns, thawed
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon chopped parsley
- Pinch teaspoon salt
- Pinch teaspoon pepper
- 1 heaping teaspoon cream cheese
- 1 green onion, chopped and divided
- 1 teaspoon butter
- Set up the grill for indirect cooking and heat to 350-400˚F.
- Place the hash browns in a bowl and pat dry using paper towels.
- Grease an aluminum baking pan with the butter.
- Place the catfish filet in the greased pan.
- Mix the bacon, hash browns, half of the cheddar cheese, ½ the green onion, 1 teaspoon Tennessee Whiskey Cajun Blackening Seasoning, parsley, salt and pepper.
- Place the catfish fillet in the banking pan.
- Place the mixture on each fillet, mounding in the middle. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese.
- Place on the grill and cook for 15-20 minutes or until done.
- Garnish with the cream cheese and remaining green onions.
