Baked Catfish (Egg-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free)


A highlight on cajun cooking on the Well Fed Network, featured this low calorie / low fat preparation of catfish (rather than the typical fried or butter sauteed recipe) from the magazine, Eating Well.

Yield: 5 servings


  • 1-1/2 lb catfish fillets
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning, such as Tony Chachere’s (more or less to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place catfish in an 11×9 inch glass baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top catfish with garlic, cajun seasoning and lemon juice. Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with chopped parsley and lemon wedges.
