Recently I went to the store to buy frozen catfish fillets so that I could make Cajun catfish, and I could not find them. The person at the fish counter told me that there are not a lot of catfish this year, so fresh and frozen catfish cost the same for them to buy. Therefore, this grocery store chose to only carry fresh. It was very affordable. I bought pre-marinated Cajun catfish that they had packaged that morning from HEB. The fillets were huge, and each fillet really made 2 servings. There were 2 fillets in the package, so it could feed four.
I grew up in a small town in southeast Texas, which is about 45 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico as well as from the Louisiana border, so I am picky about my Cajun catfish. The HEB marinated Cajun catfish passed the test.

Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Once hot, spray the pan with cooking spray. Place the fish on the grill. Cook for about 4 minutes per side or until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
