Course: 
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 boneless catfish filets (4½-ounce fish fillets each) or other firm-fleshed fish, about ½ inch thick at thickest part, well chilled     
  • About 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Seafood Magic, or            
  • Blackened Redfish Magic, or Meat Magic, or Barbecue Magic, or Fajita   
  • Magic or Magic Seasoning Salt or Magic Salt-Free Seasoning

Note:  Bronzing is a wonderful cooking technique for meat or fish – and it’s so simple.  You actually roast one side of the meat or fish at a time on a heavy griddle or in a large, heavy aluminum skillet or electric skillet heated to 350 degrees.  (You can purchase a surface thermometer, or pyrometer, to measure dry temperature of griddle or aluminum skillet.)  If you omit butter stages, bronzing produces delicious reduced-fat meat and fish dishes.  Just spray griddle or skillet surfaces with nonstick cooking spray just before adding meat.
