Cornmeal-Battered Oven-Fried Catfish
½ pinch, freshly ground
Fat free skim milk
2 spray(s), (5 one-second sprays per serving)
Uncooked catfish fillet(s)
1 pound(s), cut into 4 pieces
1 pound(s), steamed
1 medium, quartered
- Preheat oven to 220°C (425°F).
- Mix cornmeal, paprika, thyme, salt, celery seeds, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper together in a shallow soup bowl. Pour milk into another shallow soup bowl.
- Coat a large nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray. Dredge fillets first in milk, then in cornmeal mixture, coating both sides and pressing cornmeal mixture gently to adhere. Place coated fillets on baking sheet and lightly spray each with cooking spray.
