Another ridiculously easy recipe.

EASY - my grocery store has catfish already in a cajun marinade, so this was literally shake and bake! The Nutrition Facts are likely way off (in a good way) because the full cup of dressing doesn't stay on the fish. Next time I'll try panko or cornbread crumbs.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb catfish fillet
  • 1 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 12 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs or 12 cup cajun seasoned dry bread crumb


  1. Put the catfish fillets in a ziplock bag and pour in your favorite Italian dressing. Let the fish fillets marinate for a couple of hours, refrigerated.
  2. Turn the oven on to 425F and line a pan with foil and spray the foil with nonstick spray.
  3. Remove the catfish from the dressing and dredge in seasoned breadcrumbs and place the fillets on the foil.
  4. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes for small fillets, 20-25 for large fillets.
  5. Great served with tartar sauce, lemon wedges.
