Cheesy Baked Catfish

Comment on this recipe

Note: You can buy ready-made cornflake crumbs, or make your own by crushing cornflakes very finely.

Ingredients

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup cornflake crumbs (see note)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
6 catfish fillets (about 2 pounds total)
Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place the oil in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, combine the cornflake crumbs, cheese, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well. Season catfish fillets with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Dip the seasoned fillets in the oil, then in the crumb mixture, coating completely. Place on the baking sheet. Lightly coat the top of the fillets with nonstick cooking spray then bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the coating is golden and the fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately.
