I loved this dish and this technique. The spices used in the breading were right on, and the fish turned out delicious. The only thing that I did (since I had 2.6 lbs of catfish filets) was add an egg to the skim milk and about 1/2 cup of bread crumbs to the breading. I will keep making this recipe again and again since my husband really loves seafood (and I hate frying fish). A few words of caution, though - after the fish is finished baking, serve it immediately. I let it sit for about 40 minutes in a warm oven (husband was late coming for dinner) and the bottoms became soggy when they were perfectly crisp after just being done. Secondly, my filets were huge (4 filets equaled 2.6 lbs) and I had tons of breading and eggwash left over. Afterwards I realized that cutting the fish into smaller strips/pieces would have solved that problem by creating more surface area for the eggwash and breading and would have made smaller, even crisper pieces of fish!
Excellent seasoning..not too salty at all. Was crispy enough without having to flip over as one of the earlier reviewers mentioned. This cornmeal seasoning would also be great for frying fish in oil, but for the healthier version in the oven it is still A++++.
Thanks! Made this tonight (no garlic or onion powder and half the salt) and it was, as my wife said, "your best fish yet." Had all the necessary ingredients on hand, prep was quick. I also substituted crushed Triscuits for the cornmeal to make it a bit healthier -- worked perfectly.
This made the best catfish in the world. We always get whole catfish from our store and I usually cook it whole. I cut it in half and made it according to the recipe. The only thing I did do was add a touch of cayenne pepper. I made homemade sauce with wasabi mayo, real mayo, dehydrated garlic (my own) and a pickle in the chopper. Nice change from what we usually do with the catfish. Hubby loved it, that is half the battle.
This was the best fish I have ever had that was not fried. It turned out so crispy without the added fat from frying. The seasoning was perfect. I used oarnge roughy because I don't really care for catfish. I will be making this often. Thanks for posting!
Fast and easy! Pretty tasty a little bland. Mine was not as crispy as actual fried catfish (that may not be a surprise to other people). I did try re-dipping/breading 2 fillets as you often do with chicken fingers to make them extra crispy. They were not! A little soggy actually. So only dip once! They will have more crunch!
