Directions:
Prepare rice before starting catfish - this dish comes together quickly. Place oil in pan or electric skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning to taste on filets (do not dredge). When oil is hot, place fillets in pan and adjust heat as necessary. Cook 3-4 minutes then turn. Add shrimp and peppers about one minute after flipping. Cook another 3-4 minutes, making sure not too over cook the shrimp. Remove pan from heat. Spoon rice onto middle of the plate then place catfish on the rice followed by shrimp and bell peppers. Garnish with chopped parsley.
