Traditionally catfish is usually deep-fried in hot oil, which can be unhealthy. Baked catfish is a much healthier version of catfish. It is seasoned with salt and pepper, dusted with spicy Cajun-flavored cornmeal, and then baked until it is crispy and flaky. Unfortunately, we could not serve this baked catfish on its own, so we decided to do it with Cajun fries and coleslaw.
The Cajun fries are coated with olive oil and seasoned with chili powder, Cajun seasoning, salt, cayenne pepper, and oregano, then baked until they are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. The coleslaw combines Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, sugar-free sweetener, apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of salt. It adds a refreshing flavor that balances the spicy flavors of the Cajun fries and the baked catfish. All in all, this baked catfish is perfectly delicious and satisfying.
