Place the catfish in a shallow bowl or baking dish.
Season the fillets with 1 tablespoon Seasoning Salt.
Add the lemon juice, parsley, and garlic.
Turn the catfish several times to coat evenly. Allow mixture to Marinate for up to 10 minutes.
Combine the cornmeal, flour, and the remaining Seasoning Salt in a shallow bowl.
Remove the catfish from the marinade and dredge in the cornmeal mixture, coating evenly.
Heat the oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
Moisten fillets with light coating of pan spray.
When the oil is hot, add the catfish, in batches, and fry until golden brown on both sides, turning once, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
