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.

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

  • 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.

Great recipe! We served it over couscous--if I served it over couscous again I would make the sauce thinner with more lemon juice and less tahini. But the recipe as is should be great over pita I reckon. Read More

Not 100% disgusting but I didn't like it at all. My wife thought this too lemony and I thought it was too "sesame seedy". The parsley helped mellow this out. I won't be making this again. Read More

The sauce was very nice. I didn't have tahini so I substituted 3 parts peanut butter and 1 part sesame oil (from a hint I saw somewhere else on the web). My son didn't like it at all. I didn't care for the sauce with the fish. My husband and boarder both gobbled it down. I think I'll try to find something else to put the sauce on. Read More

My BF called it interesting. Sorry I didn't like this one. I'll save my tahini for hummus. Read More
