This is one of my family's favorite dishes. Serve it with pita bread. You can also use red snapper in place of the catfish.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds catfish fillets

  • cup tahini

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice

  • salt to taste

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking dish and arrange the catfish in a single layer.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 45 to 60 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the tahini, garlic, water, and lemon juice; season with salt. Once the fish is done, cut it into 1 inch cubes, and pour the tahini sauce overtop. Sprinkle with parsley to garnish.
