1 ts Dried thyme
1 ts Dried basil
1/2 ts Garlic powder
1/2 ts Lemon pepper
4 ts Blackening seasoning
4 4 ounce catfish fillets
1/2 ts Paprika
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Spray the vegetable oil over the baking

Put the cornmeal, thyme, and basil on a large plate and mix well.
Sprinkle 1/8 teaspoon of the garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon of the lemon
pepper, and 1 teaspoon of the blackening seasoning on each of the catfish
Coat the fillets thoroughly with the cornmeal mixture and transfer them to
the prepared baking sheet. Dust each fillet with 1/8 teaspoon of the
paprika. Coat the catfish lightly with the cooking spray.
Place the baking sheet on the bottom shelf of the oven. Bake for 20

until the crust is golden and the fish flakes easily.

fillets, or with lemon wedges. Cut the pointed ends off the lemon before
cutting if into wedges, exposing more of the delicate fruit.
