These nicely spiced fillets are sure to win you a boatload of compliments! "I got the original recipe from a chef in the culinary arts department of a college where I used to work," recalls reader Dolores Barnas from Basdell, New York.


  • 4-1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 catfish fillets (6 ounces each)
  • Refrigerated butter-flavored spray


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Spritz both sides of fish with butter-flavored spray. Dip one side of each fillet in spice mixture.
  2. Place spice side down in a large skillet coated with butter-flavored spray. Cook over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
