Cajun Catfish Fillets

The spicy cornmeal breading stays crispy when the fish is baked on a ventilated broiler pan. You can also use yellow cornmeal. Try this breading on other white fish fillets.

6 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 lemon wedge) Total time: 23 Minutes

2             tablespoons yellow cornmeal
1-1/2      teaspoons seasoned salt
1-1/2      teaspoons dried oregano
1            teaspoon garlic powder
1            teaspoon onion powder
3/4         teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2         teaspoon chili powder
1/4         teaspoon ground cumin
1/4         teaspoon black pepper
6            (6-ounce) catfish fillets
Cooking spray
6            lemon wedges (optional)

Preheat broiler.:

Combine first 9 ingredients in a zip-top plastic bag. Add 1 catfish fillet. Seal bag, and shake well. Remove fillet from bag, and place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with the remaining fillets and cornmeal mixture. Broil 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes. Carefully turn fillets over, and broil 6 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
