Do you have someone that goes fishing your family? My husband and son like to go fishing on the weekends together. Most of the time they don’t bring home the catch. However, sometimes they do then we cook up some of the catch. Hence, this pan seared cajun bass is fresh caught then pan seared.
While my husband and son do fish often they don’t always bring it home. Hence, they like to catch and release but if the fish fits the requirements they might bring it home. Therefore, we are never wasteful and only take what we would eat. Usually one or two fish to pan sear.
The bass is freshly caught at the lakes near us. Hence, they don’t bring home pond fish because of run off and it’s just not safe. Additionally, we have a specialty board for just cutting fish on. This way our daughter with fish allergies is safe.
Therefore, when my husband and son caught this bass it was brought home and filet. After the bass fish is filet the fish is seasoned with slap ya mama cajun seasoning. Additionally, my husband will use other cajun seasonings but slap ya mama is one he likes the best. The fish is then fried in light olive oil in a cast iron skillet.
Lastly, when frying in a cast iron skillet the best way not to burn yourself is to have a handle cover. The best silicone skillet handle cover is the one by Lodge that we use here at home. These pictures above were shot by my son. Honestly, he might have inherited my talent and I can’t wait to see him shoot more!Print
