Baked Catfish with Horseradish Butter





Catfish aren’t the prettiest thing to look at! They have a face only a mother would love; but, we really enjoy the unique flavor of catfish. 

I know catfish is supposed to be fried and it’s probably a sin not to do that; but, this recipe is great with its lowered fat intake. Fresh fish is likely one of the healthiest, low-fat foods you can eat.  Not only is baking fish the best method, it’s also the quickest and easiest way of preparing it. 

 The horseradish in this recipe gives it a little zip along with the green onions and the great simple flavors blend perfectly with the catfish.  If you like catfish, you’ll really be surprised with how tasty this is!

Baked Catfish with Horseradish Butter

Ingredients:

4 (6-ounce) catfish fillets
¼ cup chopped green onions
1½ tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons horseradish
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon kosher salt

Method:

Heat oven to 450 degrees.
Place fillets in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish,
Mix remaining ingredients until blended.
Spread horseradish butter mixture over each fillet.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until fish is just cooked through.
Broil to brown, if desired.

ENJOY!

  40. Nice to meet you Pam. I remember the days when I would catch catfish in our local rivers. I can't say we ever tried them and I don't see them at the grocers so I will need to bide my time.

  43. bellini valli, I like catfish but I don't want to fish for them. :-) It is very plentiful in the stores here though.

  45. You did a great job, Pam. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great weekend.

  46. We used to catch our own catfish and eat them. I love fish and don't even mind a "fishy" taste, but about 4 years ago I ate a catfish (that we caught) and it was the most awful, fishiest taste ever. I haven't eaten one since. I'm sure the farm-raised catfish are wonderful, I just can't bring myself to eat it anymore. We love horseradish - I'm wondering how this sauce would taste on trout?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm a fan of catfish, and the horseradish and green onion sound great with it!

    ReplyDelete
  48. We love catfish, especially my husband he will love this. Great recipe, this is another great way to cook catfish aside from fried. Thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Pam - this recipe looks delicious - my husband loves zippy dishes - and with the horseradish...mmmmmm....you know he'll love it!! Love the zucchini recipe below (I have a big zuch staring at me & I'm trying to decide what to do with it....voila!!) Now...what do you have for fresh tomatoes? I've got lots of those that I need to use up :) Thanks for stopping over & seeing us - we LOVE meeting new bloggers (we love it even more if they give us recipes!!)
    We'll keep in touch!
    Karla & Karrie too

  50. Yum, catfish is incredibly mild and delicious. I love the idea of a spunky horseradish sauce with it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Pam...funny thing...I've always eaten catfish...only I never knew what I was really eating until I found out that the 'Basa' fish I was buying was a.k.a. catfish. LOL
    Learning every day.

    Lovely recipe that'll surely adapt to it becuse I love this versatile fish.

    Ciao for now,
    Claudia

  52. I've eaten cat fih before, but never cooked it myself. It is popular here in Africa, where it is also called 'mud fish' or 'barbel'. Thanks for another great recipe !

    ReplyDelete
  53. Celeste, thanks so much!

    Kat, thank you and I hope you're having a great weekend also!

    Karen, I understand completely as I've had a similar experience also. The horseradish would be great with trout and about any whitefish.

    lisaiscooking, great! Glad you like it also!

    Cook with Madin, thanks! Hope you try it and both enjoy it!

    The Summer Kitchen Girls, the horseradish definitely adds zip! Yes, I have two great tomato recipes I will be posting in the next week or two when the local tomatoes are really good and ripe. Thanks for stopping by and I will be keeping in touch also!

    Jacqueline, I like that spunky! Hope you're having a great weekend!

    Foodessa, funny! Well, I've learned something new to as I've not heard of 'Basa' before now. Glad you like the recipe!

    FoodFunFarmLife, interesting with the names! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

  60. When I read that Horseradish was an ingredient, I knew it would taste great! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Kathleen, welcome! Thanks so much and have a great 'rest of the day!'

    girlchef, it is good, horsey sauce and all! Hope you try it!

    JG, thank you! It's tangy good!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Looking at the picture, I thought that it was fried :D I usually eat fresh fish steamed or sometimes pan fried, depending on what type of fish it is. I've never had catfish before though......but this looks really yummy! Especially with the horseradish butter!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh my! You had me at horseradish butter! I have tilapia right now. I wonder if your butter would be good with that fish too???

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks for the recipe - I have a package of catfish in the freezer that I need to use up. I have to admit that I love fried catfish the best though. When I lived in Indiana, there was a great restaurant right outside of Indianapolis that only served catfish. You'd get a whole fried catfish (head and all). It was awesome but it was hard to get in to because it was so popular.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Von, the broiler helped it out a little. The horseradish really made it yummy! Thanks for stopping by!

    theUngourmet, the butter would be great on your tilapia! Have a good day!

    Edie, yes, I know those restaurants as there was one in Louisville like that years ago. I'm not sure I want to see the head on it though! ;) Thanks for the visit!
