Oven Baked Onion Ranch Catfish Fillets

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by mailbelle

Catfish fillets dipped in a sour cream/mayo/ranch dressing mixture and rolled in french-fried onion rings. This is another recipe I've found on an old yellowed newspaper clipping and am transferring to Zaar.

WOW! This was so delicious! Fish was moist and flavorful. The French fried onions gave great texture and crunch. This has become my new favorite way to cook catfish. With the sour cream, mayo mixture the fish practically melted in our mouths. The whole family enjoyed them thoroughly! Thanks for posting! :D
