Fish. It’s something popular during the warmer months. Actually, fish is popular all times of the year. Some people dislike fish. Some people claim to dislike it but have never even tried it. Oh well, you can’t please everyone. Yes, I just rambled about fish. No, I had no good reason for doing so. Below is my take on baked catfish. A simple dish that you can whip up in a short amount of time. Oh, and catfish are not as ugly as monkfish (remember that recipe?).
- 2 catfish fillets (7-8 ounces)
- ground sea salt (they sell this with a grinder attached)
- ground black pepper
- 1 stick butter
- 4 ounces dry white wine
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Season fish with salt and pepper. Place fish in a deep baking dish.
- Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add wine, lemon juice, and garlic. Simmer about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and spoon over fish.
- Sprinkle paprika over fish.
- Bake fish for 12-15 minutes, or until fish is cooked.
See? Easy! Catfish is a thicker fish than other fillets so your cooking time may vary. It’s also very filling due to its size. Absolutely delicious and takes little to no time to make.
