6 (6-ounce) catfish fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs*
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 egg whites
Vegetable cooking spray
Garnishes: orange slices, parsley sprigs


Sprinkle catfish evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.

Combine breadcrumbs, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper in a shallow bowl.

Whisk egg whites in a shallow bowl until frothy. Dip fillets in egg whites, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture.

Arrange fillets on a wire rack coated with cooking spray in an aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan. (Do not overlap fillets.) Lightly coat fillets evenly on both sides with cooking spray.

Bake at 375° for 25 to 30 minutes or until fish is golden brown. Serve with Lemon Cream. Garnish, if desired.

*1 cup plain dry breadcrumbs may be substituted for panko breadcrumbs.
