Cajun Pecan Catfish


The flavors of the Louisiana bayou country come to life in McCormick® Gourmet Collection® Cajun Seasoning - a spicy-hot blend of peppers, onion, garlic and herbs. It's the easy way to spark this pecan-topped baked fish. Also good with snapper, grouper, or other firm fleshed fish fillets.
