It's actually pretty simple! Just follow a few simple steps and in about a half hour, you can have a tasty southern dinner on your table.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 2 can (6 ounces each) lump crabmeat, drained and flaked
  • 1 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
