  • 4 fillets 6 ounces each fresh catfish
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • ¼ cup honey-Dijon mustard or half honey and half Dijon mustard, mixed
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • dried parsley flakes
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Coat a baking tray with cooking spray or a little olive oil.
  2. Combine the chopped onion and the honey-mustard and coat the filets. Season the catfish with the kosher salt and black pepper, then sprinkle them with the granulated garlic.

  3. Lay the fillets side by side on the prepared cooking tray and sprinkle the parsley flakes over the top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Turn the oven to broil, and broil the fish for 2 or 3 minutes to give the onion mixture a crispy finish. Serve hot.


Food For Thought – Make use of what you have on hand even if you don’t have these exact ingredients. It’s the contrast of the sweet, tangy, and savory that gives this recipe its unique flavor. Orange marmalade with stone ground mustard and minced rosemary covers all these bases, as would spicy brown mustard, molasses, and caraway seeds. Let your taste be your guide.

Good To Know – Keep this preparation in mind for chicken breast, salmon fillets, and pork chops. Make a large batch of the seasoning mixture and keep it on hand to use for more than just the baked catfish recipe.
