The wife tried this on the 10 pound blue one I brought home last week. It is a simple recipe but the fish was fantastic. Thought I would share with anyone interested.

Baked Catfish

6 Catfish fillets
1/4 Stick - Melted Butter
1 - Lemon, squeezed
Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Wash and dry catfish fillets. Sprinkle both sides of fish with garlic powder, salt, pepper. Place "what would be skin side" down in a greased 9x13 inch pan. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the fish fillets. Generously brush melted butter on fish fillets. Bake at 350 degrees uncovered fro 30-45 minutes.

That sounds good but sure seems like a long cook time

fish usually flake in 20- 25 minutes

I aint about to question her cooking lest I do it all from then on. It tasted mighty fine. It was the fillets from a 10 pound fish and they were pretty thick. I reckon that might be why she cooked it so long.

me either weatherman i bet she is a great cook i was just checking to

see if that was right with a thick fillet it may take longer my little crappie

sure never weighted 10 pounds although i might say they did.

you are so right and i am wrong here is the answer as you said.


How Long does It Take to Bake Fish?
Answer
The amount of time it takes to bake fish depends on the thickness and type of fish you are going to bake. The general rule is that it takes 10 minutes for each 1 inch of thickness in a 375 degree oven. Make sure you don't over bake it as it will continue to cook when removed from the oven.

Paddlegoon, I probably have enough catfish in the freezer in the garage to have a fish fry and feed everybody on this forum with fish left over. Maybe someone should get with the folks at Cedar Landing and a bunch of us could show up and the cooks can fix the fish from my freezer. Be a nice way for everyone to meet and swap fish and kayak stories.

Add some crushed up Ritz crackers to the outside and it will be crunchy on the outside and moist in the middle.
