Uncle Glen's Famous Fish

This recipe comes from Travis' brother, Glen.  Jud actually makes the fish when we want it.  We have been making it for years, but I finally got it put on my blog. It is so nice to have recipes from family members, because we think of Glen every time we have this fish.  Uncle Glen used catfish. Sometimes we use catfish, but sometimes we use tilapia. In this picture, catfish was used.

Printable Recipe:

2 catfish or tilapia fillets
cajun seasoning (fine dusting on both sides if you like  a little kick, otherwise just dust one side.)
2/3 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup flour
Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray a baking pan with a generous amount of cooking spray or use parchment paper. Otherwise, it will stick.  Sprinkle  both sides of the tilapia with Cajun seasoning.  Mix the flour and cornmeal in a ziplock bag. Place the tilapia in the bag and coat it with the flour/cornmeal mixture.  Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake 20 minutes on one side, flip it over and cook 10 minutes on the opposite side.   We serve ours with tartar sauce and ketsup.  I like a little horseradish in my ketsup.  If the filets are small, you will probably just cook them 15 min. on one side and 10 on the other.  When my fillets are as small as the ones in the picture, I buy 3 fillets for Jud and me.
