  • 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.
