Mix all ingredients together to make the Cajun Dynamite Dust that you will use in the Blackened Catfish. To store, place in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Place the Cajun Dynamite Dust seasoning on a flat plate. Coat each catfish fillet and shrimp with seasoning. Using your hands, rub the seasoning into the fish and shrimp. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat until very hot, add butter and heat until sizzling. Add catfish and shrimp and pan fry until blackened on both sides, turning once. Serve on a bed of Red Beans and Rice.
