With the heat, I thought a light meal of catfish would be really yummy.  And while I love fried catfish (really fried anything) as much as the next person, I wanted to keep it healthy.

So here’s my broiled lemon catfish recipe:

  • 1 lb of catfish
  • 3-4 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning (enough to cover both sides of the catfish)
  • 4 TBSP of panko crumbs (enough to cover both sides of the catfish)
  • 2 tsp of corn starch
  • 2 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions: Pat the catfish dry with paper towels.  Sprinkle the catfish with Old Bay Seasonings and salt & pepper.  Then sprinkle the lemon juice over both sides.  Put the finely chopped garlic on both sides.  Then lightly pour some Extra Virgin Olive Oil on both sides.  Next mix the panko crumbs with the corn starch in a bowl.  Then put the mixture on both sides.  Then finish with a light drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Broil on each side for 6-7 minutes.
