“A deliciously crunchy and spicy way to serve catfish inspired by a similar dish I had in Beaumont, TX.” - by FLOWERFROGGIRL
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- In a shallow dish, stir together 1/4 cup of lime juice and beer. Place fish in the dish, and turn to coat. Marinate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Coat a roasting rack with cooking spray, and place over a baking sheet.
- Rinse fish with cold water, and pat dry. Discard the marinade. In one dish, stir together the cornmeal, tortilla chip crumbs, salt and pepper. In another dish, stir together 2 tablespoons of lime juice and canola oil. Dip fillets into the lime and oil, then into the cornmeal mixture to coat. Place the fish onto the roasting rack.
- Bake fish for 8 to 10 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork. While the fish is baking, combine the processed cheese, chili powder, cumin, and chipotle pepper in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until melted and smooth.
- Place fish onto serving plates, and spoon the cheese sauce over them. Top with a sprinkling of cilantro leaves, if desired.

"I had the same issue as another reviewer...my fillets were thick and needed about 5-6 mins longer in the oven. I only had real cheddar cheese, so I added a little milk, salsa and a small spoon of sou..." See morer cream to a handful of cheddar cheese cubes instead of the chipotle and processed cheese spread. Otherwise, everything else was the same, and the dish was very good."
