    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    Adapted from Cooking Light. We love fried catfish but since deep frying isn't a healthy way to cook (and I hate doing it anyway), I have been looking for an oven-cooked alternative. Here is one that we liked. Serving size--1 fillet; 296 calories, 8.8 g fat, 17.7 g carb, 1.1 g fiber, 99 mg cholesterol. Marinate time is 30 minutes.

      Liked the concept, but needs something. Couldn't taste the beer and the cornstarch didn't help the topping. Made for O is for Oct. event.

      I made these today for a sunday lunch and they were very easy. I only had 3 large fillets but was still able to use most of the cornmeal "covering". They were slightly spicy from the hot sauce/beer. Thanks NurseDi.

      What a wonderful, low-fat recipe this is! I added about 1/2 tsp. each of garlic powder and chile powder to the cornmeal mixture. I will definitely make this many, many times. Thanks, NurseDi!
