Healthy Baked Catfish



2 T canola oil
2 t garlic salt
2 t thyme
2 t paprika
1 t pepper
1 catfish fillet

1. Rinse fillet with water–let drain in colander.
2. Spray/oil a cookie sheet.
3. Mix all ingredients but the catfish in a bowl.
4. Using a basting brush, brush over both sides of the fish.
5. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-13 minutes (**It took closer to 15 minutes in my experience)


*Catfish has a fun flavor to it, and this is a healthy and flavorful way to cook it… and a great gluten free alternative to the many breaded catfish recipes.

Thai Fish Cakes


13 oz boneless white fish–chopped
1 t red chiles, chopped
2 t honey
2 t fish sauce (or if you don’t have any, use olive oil)
4 kaffir lime leaves–chopped (I used lime juice & lettuce leaves)
1/2 c green beans–finely sliced
1/2 c red peppers–finely chopped

Place the fish, chiles, honey, fish sauce, and kaffir lime leaves into a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add the beans and red bell pepper and mix thoroughly.

Heat a good amount of olive oil in a deep frying pan. Divide the mixture into 8 balls and shape into flat patties. Fry evenly on each side for about 4 minutes until golden and cooked through.

*I served these with a mild honey chili garlic sauce (simply mix chili garlic sauce with lots of honey, depending on how spicy you’d like). The fish cakes are really pretty with lots of color.
