Baked Catfish

Down here in the deep South we sure like to eat our grain feed Mississippi farm raised Catfish. Looks like from the production records that this may be true in other parts of the country as well.
Lots of times, well maybe most of the time, we eat it fried. I came up with this recipe for Bake Catfish with Herbs and thought I would give this a try.


1/2 Teaspoon Salt, or to taste
1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper, fresh ground
1 Teaspoon Parsley, dried
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Italian Herb Mix
2 Catfish Filets
1 Tablespoon Butter, melted
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Cooking Spray, as needed

Mix together the first 5 Ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of the Catfish filets with the mixture.
In another small bowl mix together the melted Butter, Lemon Juice, and Garlic Powder.
Place the Catfish in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Drizzle with the melted Butter/Lemon Juice/ Garlic Powder mixture.
Bake uncovered in a preheated 350° oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until the Catfish flaked easily.
