I love fried catfish, or any fried fish for that matter, however, I know it's unhealthy, so I decided to try "oven-frying" it... and it actually turned out pretty good! Since Catfish is a fattier fish the nuggets are perfect for this method of cooking.
Calories: 8ozs = 320 (... weighed frozen)

Yellow corn meal: 3 tablespoons:
Total: 410, Carbs: 18, Fiber: 3, Fat: 11, Protein: 32
Preheat oven to 425, however, since I have an electric/convection oven, I think my temperature is set to 325/350... Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat thoroughly with cooking oil...
** I season the cornmeal and fish with the following: Chef Merito, Chicken seasoning (Sazonador para Pollo); coarse black pepper, onion powder, & chili powder...
- evenly coat each piece of fish with the cornmeal
- place on the greased baking sheet. Coat the tops of the nuggets with cooking spray until wet.
Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish is brown on both sides and easily flaked with a fork.
