Blackened Catfish

4 catfish fillets
olive oil
1/3 pound cheap fatty bacon

Seasoning Mix:
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons thyme
2 teaspoons white pepper
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons rosemary -- crushed
2 teaspoons fennel seed -- crushed
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt

Lemon Butter:
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
sliced green onions

First off, you should cook this in a well-ventilated kitchen. Fry the bacon, then feed it to the dogs and hang onto the grease. Keep it just this side of smoking.

Combine all dry ingredients, rub fillets with olive oil then coat liberally with spices. Drop in hot grease and cook until a you can easily put a fork through them (nothing more evil than overcooked catfish).
