Easy Spicy Parmesan Baked Catfish



Now that it’s cooler, Bill took a well-deserved break from standing over a hot grill, and I baked this great recipe.



Usually, I dredge the fish in cornmeal; this time I combined Parmesan cheese and flour with seasonings.  Cut back on the cayenne pepper, paprika and garlic if spicy isn’t your thing.

The flavor of this catfish is deliciously spicy, the breading has a crunch, with the fish being sweet tender and flaky.

This delicious catfish is easy to prepare, with the bonus being not an overwhelming amount of calories like fried catfish, and no greasy mess to clean up!

      Hey, have you eaten chestnuts before? We had local ones at the market today and I tried one. Oh my gosh, love it. Going back tomorrow to get more. I only tried it raw so far. Excited to roast them and play about.

  10. Pam, Spicy is our thing and this catfish recipe is right up our alley! Baked is good as I've only grilled fish once... (lack of confidence) The one time I did grill fish was Copper River Salmon...hard to miss on that one! Baked is good also because my grill has just about died. They sure don't build them to last! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave.
