Being a southerner with a bunch of fishermen in my family, we usually have an abundance of catfish in the freezer. I decided if tilapia could be parmesan encrusted, so could catfish. My mom and I prefer these over fried catfish.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine parmesan, flour, and seasonings.
  3. Dredge the catfish in milk.

  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish is done and become flaky.

What a great catfish recipe! I, too, used Old Bay Seasoning instead of creole seasoning as I am a wimp with hot stuff. This was easy to fix and we enjoyed it with roasted potatoes and cole slaw.
I will spray the pan first next time as I had trouble removing the fish from the baking pan. Thanks,

I used Old Bay instead of creole, and it turned out delicious! My picky preschooler even loved it!

I didn't use the paprika as I have an allergy. However, it turned out wonderful. Should have made a double batch. Also used halibut not catfish available here. Still the white fish was wonderful. Put it under the broiler about 7 minutes to put the crunch on the top at the end of the cooking cycle. Thanks again.
