Un-fried Cajun Catfish


Cooking spray
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried basil
Garlic powder, to taste
Lemon pepper, to taste
Cajun spice, to taste
2, 8-oz catfish fillets
1/2 tsp paprika



Preheat oven to 400˚F. Spray the vegetable oil over the baking sheet three times to coat. Put the cornmeal, thyme and basil on a large plate and mix well.

Sprinkle garlic powder, lemon pepper and Cajun spice on both sides of each catfish fillet. Coat the fillets thoroughly with the cornmeal mixture and transfer them to the prepared baking sheet.

Dust each fillet with paprika. Coat the catfish lightly with cooking spray. Place the baking sheet on the bottom shelf of the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F, and bake for about 5 minutes more, until the crust is golden and the fish flakes easily.
