My husband loved this! I used the same proportions bread crumbs to spices, and substituted Old Bay Seasoning for the cajun powder,chili powder and pepper. I loved the coating. I baked the catfish at 450 degrees for 25 minutes. (Different oven!) It was a satisfying dish!
Too spicy for the little one, but I loved it. I am always looking for good fish recipes and this one will be staying in my recipe box for future use. Will leave out the chili powder next time and maybe add some parmesan cheese.
3 stars for flavor. Fried catfish is generally finger food and this wasn't. I used cornmeal and it didn't all 'cook'. I think your nutritional value is off. Four 4oz pieces of fish (one serving?) for 170 calories isn't feasible.
OMG this came very close to fried. Used what I had Canola spray, corn meal will use bread crumbs next time. Ms. Dash and Lite season salt, preheat at 450 and turned as it browned. I will try Talapia and shrimp this way too. Nice meal and not greasy and family enjoyed it too. tyvm
My husband made this and shrimp stir fry, it was delicious. He used egg beaters and different seasonings to his taste. But you can season anything to your liking. Our three year old really liked it. This will be a fave in our house
I figured the 1 tsp of chili powder was a general amount & would be ok for me, someone who really doesn't do spicy foods. Big mistake! Too hot for me. My boyfriend loved it though (he's a lover of spicy food). Next time I will substitute the chili powder for something else.
This was a great recipe my family and i loved it. It could use an egg wash to make the breadcrumbs stick a bit better. W tried it with egg whites the second time we made it and it worked really well.
