  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 13x9 glass baking dish with the oil, and set aside.
  2. Rinse the catfish fillets, and pat dry. In a shallow bowl, combine the cornmeal, creole seasoning, paprika, sugar, and black pepper. Combine the eggs and hot sauce or water in a another bowl. Dip the fillets in the egg mixture, dredge in the cornmeal mixture, and arrange in the baking pan.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through and golden brown. Turn once during cooking. Place catfish on a paper-towel lined plate, and serve immediately with additional hot sauce.

The three tablespoons of oil is critical. I used less when I first prepared this dish and did not get the desired crispiness. I tried again with the recommended amount of oil and it made a huge difference. Will make again.

This was a simple and easy recipe to follow. I had all the ingredients on hand and it was a healthy alternative to fried catfish. It was tasty and not overpowering.

I loved this dish! I have always found fried fish to be a favorite of mine. This was a great healthy alternative. I used fresh redfish fillets my husband caught instead of catfish. The only other change was to reduce the amount of hotsauce to 1 tsp. I have a four yr old who is not good with spicy foods. The breading was crunchy and tasty. This will deffinitely be made again in our house!! Thank you Carina!
