Southern Cornmeal-crusted Baked Catfish
"Classic Southern fried catfish gets a lighter, healthier, and easier makeover with this cornmeal-crusted baked catfish! It’s crispy on the outside, tender and flaky on the inside, and perfect alongside cornbread, collard greens, coleslaw, and biscuits. Think of this recipe as your weeknight version of a Southern fish fry — minus the messy, time-consuming frying on the stovetop! Instead, the oven-fried baked catfish is a lighter, hands-off meal that lets the oven do the work. It’s still crispy and flavorful, but it’s much easier to pull together on a busy evening."
