1 1/2 pounds catfish fillets, cut in strips
2 teaspoons Cajun-style blackened seasonings
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Sprinkle catfish strips with blackened fish seasoning. Spread catfish with mayonnaise. Place in a shallow dish, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
In a large skillet, heat 4 tablespoons butter until it begins to sizzle. Sear the fish strips until golden, turning once. Transfer to a 9×13 inch baking dish, and arrange fish in a single layer.
In the same skillet, heat the remaining 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms in butter until golden. Stir in parsley, green onions, and shrimp. Reduce heat to low, and cook until shrimp are pink and tender. Stir in cream of shrimp soup, and blend well. Ladle soup mixture over fish in baking dish.
