Cajun catfish on greens
½ tsp, coarsely ground
uncooked catfish fillet(s)
1 pound(s), cut into 4 pieces
1 bunch(es), trimmed, rinsed, and patted dry
fresh lime juice
1 medium clove(s), or to taste, minced
⅛ tsp, or to taste
- Preheat the oven to 500°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Combine the cornmeal, flour, Cajun seasoning, pepper, and 1⁄4 teaspoon of the salt on a plate.
- Lightly beat the egg in a shallow dish; add the fish, turning to coat both sides. Lift the fish from the egg and coat it with the cornmeal mixture.
- Arrange the fish on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the tops with nonstick spray and bake, without turning, until just opaque in the center and crisp and golden on the outside, about 10 minutes.
- Arrange the arugula on a large platter. Combine the lime zest, lime juice, oil, garlic, sugar, and the remaining 1⁄8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; sprinkle over the arugula. Top with the fish.
