My fiancee and I love to fish for catfish and had been trying to come up with an alternative to fried fish. He came up with this FABULOUS baked catfish recipe! It was so yummy I was inspired to share it the same night! We paired it with corn on the cob and greens. If you are looking for a tasty recipe for baked fish, this is it!!

My mom bought some fresh catfish yesterday and since we eat fish quite often she asked me to find a new recipe. I came across this one and we decided to try it out- it's delicious! I thought the mustard would be overpowering but it's definitely not. A very tasty tangy dish we're South Asian so we like our food flavorful!. We did add more spices and also more onions and green peppers since we like vegetables. We also didn't have the seasoning salt so my mom mixed Mrs. Dash sea salt and several other spices together. Overall my family really enjoyed this dish my dad kept commenting on how good it is. Thank you for sharing we'll definitely make this again! Read More

I made due with the ingredients I had on hand (no garlic no peppers slices of preserved lemon with the onion on top during the baking). It was very tasty! I will likely make it again and tweak the ingredients of the sauce a little more to my liking. Read More

I should have made the peppers into quarters got better done that we prefer. I added the sauce over all the veggies as well as fish and was a nice flavor. Thanks for the recipe.I will make again. Read More

This was so tasty and easy! I used Swai instead and honey mustard instead of dijon. Loved the additional flavors from the veggies (sauteed slightly before adding them on top). Read More

Only mild modifications only because of personal taste and half the amount cooked. You will only get a hint of the mustard if you cut back which was my largest modification. Her and her husband cook with great minds. You'll love this. Read More

Really good really simple sauce. Great recipe. I added Magi seasoning to "ethnic it up" but it was unnecessary. Thanks for the recipe will use again as is and adapt. Read More

It's good but I think you should cut the mustard down to 1/4 cup. Also you don't need 2 cloves of garlic - use garlic to taste. Read More
