Cookbook Tuesday: Cajun Pecan Catfish

Another friend, Rebecca, sent me her recipe that she made yesterday. She made fish as well. If its not a fish found in the sea is it still seafood? LOL Not sure if I should label this differently. Anyway heres the recipe from Rebecca!

"Here is the recipe I used this Tuesday, from the cookbook All Recipes All-Time Favorite Best Brand Recipes.

Cajun Pecan Catfish
1 pound catfish fillets (I used tilapia)
2 T. olive oil
1 T. Cajun seasoning (I used Penzey's)
2 t. lemon juice
1 t, thyme
1/3 c. finely chopped pecans
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
1 T. dry breadcrumbs
1 T. parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 425. Coat a shallow baking pan with non-stick spray and place fish in pan.

Combine oil, Cajun seasoning, lemon juice and thyme. Spoon or brush 1/2 of the mixture over the fish.

Add the pecans, bread crumbs, Parmesan and parsley to the remaining oil mixture and mix well. Spoon onto fish and press lightly to stick.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 - 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with lemon wedges and more parsley if desired."
