  • “A delicious way to cook catfish and made a wonderful family meal. I like recipes that aren’t very complicated. This one fits that bill. The baked coating was crisp and had an excellent flavor. Appreciate this quick and easy recipe.”

  • “This is an excellent way to cook catfish. WOW, my family and I realllllly thought this was delicious and I was impressed by how easy it was to make. The fish were tender and flaky while the coating was crisp and well seasoned. Thanks for another great recipe. Keep ’em coming.”

  • “The addition of the Parmesan in the coating was just perfect for this fish.Thanks for sharing!”

  • “WOW! This recipe was DELICIOUS! My whole family loved it!!!!! it was so easy to make I LOVE IT!!!”

  • “Thoroughly enjoyed this recipe! Will keep it for future reference. Thank you so much!”

  • “My son had some frozen swai he asked me to cook. I never heard of swai and was cooking for 2 people who don’t like fish, one guest who did like fish and while I like fish, I rarely cook it because no one else likes it. I looked up swai and it is supposedly farmed asian catfish. I defrosted the fish and made this pretty much exactly – I didn’t have any measuring devices and I used a lot of paprika since several reviews said it was too bland. I also put in a few good shakes of this sun-dried tomato and rosemary seasoning he had. My son gave 1/2 to his girlfriend, who liked it and my other son said it was actually alright. I thought it was pretty good. Served with Alton Brown’s mac & cheese so everybody was happy.”

  • “I love this recipe…I am on a low carb diet so I dont add the flour…still fantastic!”

  • “this is really good!”

  • “i was pleasantly surprised — i had some catfish in my freezer i needed to use and my DW is not a huge fish eater — however, two pieces down (accompanied by fries and collard greens) she was telling me i could make this again — as with the others, quick and easy and oh so good.:)”

  • “We really like this fish.It was moist and flavorful. The parmesan crust was nicely browned and crispy.It was quick and easy–always a plus for me.I lined a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick foil and sprayed it with cooking spray before putting on the fish.I think I’ll cut back the butter by a tablespoon each time I make it next, to see if I can lower the fat content.”

  • “I was just placed on a low residue diet and found this wonderful site. My mom gave me a bag of catfish nuggets to try and I used this recipe. I am not a big fish person but in my research I noticed that fish is one of the easiest digestible sources of protein so I figured I better start being adventurous. I have to say this recipe was AMAZING and I actually liked it.”

  • “Absolutely wonderful! Served it with a couscous spinach and onion side I found on this site.Both were amazing!”

  • “Thanks for the recipe.Tried it tonight and it wasn’t really a hit at our place.I think part of the problem is we might not be catfish fans, so I won’t give it a rating, to be fair …just my comments. We found this to be areally mild tasting dish, that didn’t really leave us wanting more.I think we would have enjoyed a bolder/spicier flavour. Thanks for the recipe though!”

  • “This was a beautiful dish and your measurements & time were perfect. It was zippy-fast and presented and tasted like a company meal. It will certainly impress and one would ever guess it is so simple. I only had smoked paprika on hand and that probably added a bit of differnce, but not in a bad way. Thank you so much for posting this :)”

  • “Amazing dish!! It smelled so fantastic while it was cooking, and I could hardly wait to eat it. Very good. I suggest this to anyone who isn’t crazy about fish, it has a less fishy taste.”

  • “My picky 3 year old even liked it! What more can I say?!”

  • “I have been meaning to rate this for a long time . . . my boyfriend likes almost everything, but rarely requests anything in particular.This is one thing that he requests over and over.We love catfish and this is a great way to prepare it.Fast and easy and makes a quick weeknight meal.”

  • “yeah, no.Maybe I didn’t do it right, but it seems to look like the picture.No one wanted any so I was stuck with 3 filets of leftovers.”

  • “needed more flavor…sorry”
