A delicious way to cook catfish and made a wonderful family meal. I like recipes that aren't very complicated. This one fits that bill. The baked coating was crisp and had an excellent flavor. Appreciate this quick and easy recipe.

This was fantastic! Had it tonight with green beans. Just used the parm out of the can and it was fine. I had a touch of breading left over, but as I only ended up having 3 huge fillets I'm not complaining. I started this thinking I had 4 of them. The only real change was that I just shaved thin slices of cold butter and put those on top of the fish... this method meant I used only 2 T total. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will try turning on the broiler the last couple of minutes to crisp this up, but really the flavor was great as is. Thanks for a great catfish recipe that even my kids ate... and I haven't been able to say that about the 17 mo in a while.

This is an excellent way to cook catfish. WOW, my family and I realllllly thought this was delicious and I was impressed by how easy it was to make. The fish were tender and flaky while the coating was crisp and well seasoned. Thanks for another great recipe. Keep 'em coming.

The addition of the Parmesan in the coating was just perfect for this fish. Thanks for sharing!

My son had some frozen swai he asked me to cook. I never heard of swai and was cooking for 2 people who don't like fish, one guest who did like fish and while I like fish, I rarely cook it because no one else likes it. I looked up swai and it is supposedly farmed asian catfish. I defrosted the fish and made this pretty much exactly - I didn't have any measuring devices and I used a lot of paprika since several reviews said it was too bland. I also put in a few good shakes of this sun-dried tomato and rosemary seasoning he had. My son gave 1/2 to his girlfriend, who liked it and my other son said it was actually alright. I thought it was pretty good. Served with Alton Brown's mac & cheese so everybody was happy.
