I clipped this from the newspaper. It is from "Back to the Table" by Art Smith (2001). This is a recipe for the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 (5 -6 ounce) catfish fillets
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 12 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup dried breadcrumbs, seasoned

Directions

  1. Position a rack in the top third of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Season fish with Old Bay seasoning.
  4. In a shallow dish, whisk the buttermilk and egg to combine.
  5. Dip the fillets in the buttermilk, then coat on both sides with the breadcrumbs.
  6. Arrange in single layer on the baking sheet.
  7. Spray the fillets with the cooking oil and bake for 8 minutes.
  8. Carefully turn the fillets and spray again with the oil; continue to bake until crispy, about 8 minutes longer.

This is a dish which is very easy and very good. We enjoy eating fish and I prefer not to fry. I am preparing it for the second time now and didn't realize I had not reviewed it. Thank you Oolala for bringing this to us.
