Baked Catfish and Mint Cabbage Salad

 

Catfish is a wonderful source of low fat protein. Lots of recipes call for frying catfish, but baking turns it into a low calorie, high protein meal. The generous seasoning of the catfish lends to a rich flavor that is complimented perfectly by the light minty salad. Servings: 4

Here’s what you need…

For the Catfish:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, washed and stems trimmed
  • 4 catfish fillets
  • curry powder
  • salt
  • sweet paprika
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a glass baking pan, drizzle the olive oil and scatter the cilantro over the bottom of the pan.
  3. Generously season both sides of each fillet with curry, salt and sweet paprika. Place the fillets evenly across the bottom of the pan, on top of the cilantro.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice and finely minced garlic. Pour over the tops of the fillets.
  5. Cover the pan with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

For the Salad:

  • 1 head green, organic cabbage, shredded
  • 1/8 cup crushed, dry mint leaves
  • 1/8 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
