When in a time crunch for dinner and wanting comfort food, I love to make Oven Baked Cornmeal Crusted Catfish. There is something so southern and traditional about this dish!

Serve Oven Baked Cornmeal Crusted Catfish over a bed of collards as pictured or with a side of black-eyed peas and sweet potato fries!

Quick tip: spice up the catfish fillets by adding a teaspoon (or to taste) of Cajun seasoning.
