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.
- 1⁄2 cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated
- 1⁄4 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon creole seasoning (Tony's)
- 2 lbs catfish fillets, skinless
- 3 tablespoons skim milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Combine parmesan, flour, and seasonings.
- Dredge the catfish in milk.
- Coat fish WELL in cheese mixture.
- Place on baking dish.
- Drizzle butter over coated filets.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish is done and become flaky.
Keeper! I added fresh basil on top before I baked and then topped with a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese! My husband doesn't normally like catfish and he loved it!
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!
