Fried catfish with shrimp


I cooked this over a year ago although I basically make Alfredo the same each time. I'm pretty sure this is what I did


  • linguini 

  • 1 1/2 pounds jumbo Shrimp 

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach

  • salt 

  • pepper

  • 2 cloves minced garlic 

  • Cajun seasoning 

  • heavy cream

  • pinch of nutmeg 

  • cream cheese

  • grated parmesan cheese


  1. Season peeled and deveined shrimp with salt pepper and Cajun seasoning (Use your judgement when seasoning your food. I don't measure but I'm sure it was no more than a 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper, maybe 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning) 
  2. Bring pan to med high heat 
  3. Add EVOO 
  4. Cook shrimp about one minute per side then remove from pan and set aside
  5. Pour any excess oil from the pan then add the minced garlic, spinach and butter 
  6. stir about a minute. Reduce heat to med low 
  7. Cook pasta per package directions 
  8. Add heavy cream, ( I really don't measure when I'm cooking but I can tell you that I usually get a quart of heavy cream and I use about 3/4 of it)  grated parmesan cheese, and a pinch of nutmeg.   I like to put a lil red pepper flakes in mine
  9. Let simmer 5 minutes 
  10. Add 1 or two tablespoons cream cheese (optional) Whenever I make dishes with a cream sauce I like to add cream cheese, I think it gives it a smooth silky texture 
  11. Add shrimp back to the pan reserving 5 or 6 to place on top 
  12. Toss well with pasta. Then plate putting the reserved shrimp on top of the pasta. 

* For the catfish I used Louisiana brand fish fry
