Crunchy Oven-Fried Catfish

Did this last night. Used Swai until I can get catfish. Judy loved it, I loved it also. Make sure you take all the moisture out of the fish. It's a keeper.

If you have 1 lb. fish and 4 servings, shouldn't the serving size be 4 oz. not 3. I don't understand - shrinkage? Dietitian comment: Yes on average a 4 ounce portion will shrink to 3 ounces after cooking.

I didn't add egg white nor bread crumbs because I'm trying to lower my phosphorus & I'm working on that this month. But, it was still good. I added melted butter & spices. No need to omit the egg white because it has only 5 mg phosphorus. If you substitute cod for catfish the phosphorus is about 60 mg lower per serving.

I finally FINALLY found a recipe that my fried catfish loving husband likes. I am concerned about his cholesterol level and tonight I made this baked fish and he declares he likes it BETTER than fried. Hahah!! I served collard greens cooked in vegetable broth and black eyed peas. So the complete southern meal without the pork and bacon fat. LOVE IT!!
