1 bunch sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup melted butter
---lemon butter---
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons fennel seed -- crushed
2 teaspoons rosemary -- crushed
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons white pepper
2 teaspoons thyme
2 teaspoons garlic powder
---seasoning mix---
1/3 pound cheap fatty bacon
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 fillets catfish fillets

Preparation / Directions:

First off, you should cook this in a well-ventilated kitchen. Fry the bacon, then feed it to the dogs and hang onto the grease. Keep it just this side of smoking. Combine all dry ingredients, rub fillets with olive oil then coat liberally with spices. Drop in hot grease and cook until a you can easily put a fork through them (nothing more evil than overcooked catfish). (note: This is a very robust recipe. I have varied proportions by as much as 100%, and left out ingredients entirely, with varying, interesting, but never disastrous effect.)
