Using a salt-free seasoning allows you to control the amount of salt in this fried catfish dish while adding flavor at the same time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place 1 cup low-fat buttermilk in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag; add 4 (6-ounce) catfish fillets, turning to coat. Seal and chill 20 minutes, turning once.

Step 2

Remove catfish fillets from buttermilk, discarding buttermilk. Sprinkle catfish fillets evenly with 2 1/2 teaspoons salt-free Creole seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Step 3

Place 3 cups crushed cornflakes in a shallow dish. Dredge catfish fillets in cornflakes, pressing cornflakes gently onto each fillet. Place fillets on a rack coated with cooking spray in a roasting pan.

Step 4

Bake catfish fillets at 425° for 30 to 35 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. Serve catfish fillets immediately with lemon wedges.

Step 5

Note: For testing purposes only, we used The Spice Hunter Cajun Creole Seasoning Salt Free.

This fish had great texture and flavor. I didn't have salt-free creole seasoning so I used regular and omitted the added salt. I used purchased cornflake crumbs and saved a step. I lined a baking sheet with foil, sprayed with cooking spray and baked the fillets for 10 min each side at 400 and they were plenty done (although I smaller fillets.) Very quick and easy and certainly will make this again.

great for a weeknight meal. there's a bit of sweetness from the cornflakes and an underlying heat from the Creole seasoning. really great with mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans.
