Oven Fried Catfish
Makes 4 servings
You may have a hard time believing that something that tastes this great can be healthful, but it is because it's cooked with almost no oil.
4 (4-to-5-ounce) fresh catfish fillets
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Chef Paul Prudhomme's Seafood Magic® (preferred) or
1/2 cup toasted bread crumbs
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons finely sliced green onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
how to prepare
Sprinkle all surfaces of the fish evenly with 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons of the Magic Seasoning Blend and gently rub it in.
Preheat the oven to 450°.
Combine the breadcrumbs, parsley, green onions, and remaining Magic Seasoning Blend in a bowl. Add the oil and combine it until the crumbs are moist.
Dredge the fillets, one at a time in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing down gently on each side. Shake off any excess crumbs. Place the seasoned fish on a nonstick baking sheet, presentation side up, and cook for 6 minutes. Turn the fish over and cook for 6 minutes. Turn over one more time (presentation side up) and cook until done, about 4 minutes more. Serve immediately.
