  • 1 cup finely ground corn flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 catfish fillets (about 4 oz. each), (or 1 whole catfish, about 1-lb.)
  • 1 butter-flavored cooking spray, as needed


Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a flat dish or pan, combine ground corn flakes, salt, cayenne and garlic powder. Coat catfish with mixture, shaking off excess mixture, then spray the coated fish with cooking spray.

Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. On cookie sheet, place coated catfish in a single layer and place in preheated oven. Oven-fry until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes or until done, depending on the size of the fish. Remove cooked fish and blot on paper towels.


Can add up to 2 teaspoons of salt or salt substitute to recipe, and/or substitute any white fish for the catfish, if desired.
