Cajun Pecan-Crusted Catfish Tutorial
This is a quick way to jazz up a white-fleshed fish. I use catfish but this would work with Tilapia, too.
Cajun Pecan-Crusted Catfish
2 Tbs olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
2 Tbs grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbs dry bread crumbs
1 Tbs dried parsley flakes
4 catfish filets
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the oil, lemon juice, Cajun seasoning, and thyme.
In another bowl, combine the pecans, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, parsley flakes, and 1 Tbs of the oil mixture.
Place the fish on a greased baking sheet and brush with oil mixture. Then spread the pecan mixture evenly over the filets.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
