Wow. I was pretty skeptical about this recipe. ("Tuscan"? I don't think so!) But the reviews were so glowing...and boy were they right. The crispy, toasty parmesan crust was a perfect match for the catfish, which was wonderfully tender. (I left off the tomatoes to make sure the cooking was even.) Quick, easily, and absolutely delicious. One note -- definitely pay attention to the instruction to place the fish 4 inches from the broiler, not right by the flames! Read More

Although the topping by itself tasted good I didn't like it with catfish. I like catfish a lot just not this way. The dish might taste really good with a milder tasting fish like sole or red snapper so I might try it again with one of those fishes but definitely not with catfish. Read More

This was really tasty. The fish didn't get cooked with the tomato slices on top so I shoved them to the side. I had to keep it in the broiler for three additional minutes. It took six minutes on each side for exposed catfish to cook. I added mushrooms. I'll definitely make this again! Read More

I am a big catfish fan actually most all fish. This hit the spot this evening. I noticed I had some frozen fillets in the freezer and had all the other ingredients. About 25 minutes later I was enjoying my supper. I didn't alter the recipe which is my tendancy on the second and third tries. As-is this is a winner. I wil try it with mahi-mahi or grouper next.

Very good and very easy to make. My husband loved it. I didn't have lemon juice but used Italian Dressing instead to lightly coat the catfish. Read More

This was very good and quick. My only suggestion is to put the tomatoes on the side while broiling so the whole top of the fish gets a bit crispy. Read More

This was easy and very tasty. I rinsed and patted dry the filets and doused them with the lemon juice. Then I baked them for 15 minutes at 400. The plum tomatoes didn't look any good at the store so I bought grape tomatoes instead and used those. I washed them and cut them in half. I mixed them into the parm/butter/mayo mix and I added in some dried italian seasoning then spread it on top of the fish and broiled the whole thing like that. If you like fish try this dish!

I never buy catfish but it was half off at the store so I decided to give it a shot. I was looking for something quick to make myself for lunch and decided to use the catfish because I wasn't sure if I made it for my family if my kids would like it. Well let me just tell you it was quick easy and scrumptious!! I am definitely keeping this one! One of my daughters asked for a bite and then ended up eating half of it! Read More

Although some people may be hesitant to try this dish, please do try it! It’s very good. I made it exactly as stated, except I used canned diced tomatoes since I didn’t have any Roma. I also used light mayo and sprinkled a little parsley on top after broiling for added color. This recipe is a nice change from the regular cornmeal/flour coated catfish dish. However, if you’re looking for a more traditional “fishy” catfish meal, this might not be for you; it’s wonderful, but all the ingredients mask most of the fishy taste (but that’s not always a bad thing!).

This recipe is delicious! Really it is universal, it could be used on almost any type of fish. We had red snapper, and it was great. Because the fillets were so thick, I broiled each side first, then added the mayo/parm/butter mixture. I sliced the romas paper thin, and lightly salted and peppered them before the final broil. Thanks for the wonderful recipe, it will become a regular in our house. Read More
