This recipe was wonderful! I used some Chef Paul Prudhomme blackened redfish magic seasoning and the catfish turned out delicious! Will definitely be my go- to catfish recipe!

I live in an apartment, so frying in a cast-iron skillet is not really an option. This was great!

I loved this recipe. I love catfish and need a healthier way to make it other than frying it. My husband can't wait till I make it again.
