Mr. Food and our TV production team went nuts over this recipe when they visited a restaurant in the Mississippi Delta, where we taped some shows. They thought it was one of the best fish recipes they ever had. Our Test Kitchen agrees ... And so will you!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup (1/2-stick) butter, softened
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 4 (6-ounce) U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
What To Do:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except catfish; mix well.

  3. Place fish on prepared baking sheet. Spread mixture evenly over fish.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until fish is golden and flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately.

Can this be made with Tilapia instead?

Yes, you certainly can substitute Tilapia for Catfish. Enjoy!

Can this be made using Tilapia instead of catfish?

I love all Mr.Foods receipe they are soooo gooood.Thank you for them.

First off I didn't follow an important step. I broiled the fish instead of baking it. That being said. Used 1/8 butter and 1/8 olive oil. This was without a doubt. One of the tastiest fish dishes I've eaten in some time. The fish just melted on my tongue as the seasoning just danced. I will make again and this time I'll bake it. Just to see which method is better with this recipe. Broiling or baking.

I was wondering if any of your recipes have the nutritional information with it? And if not, have you, or would you, considered attaching the nutritional information with your recipes? I am in The Art Institute of Phoenix and I do enjoy looking through your recipes and I would like to use some of them for school projects. Thank you for your time.

I still don't understand. Several have questioned the proper amount of buttere but I didn't see an answer. What is the proper amont of butter for Catfish Allison? Thanks

Thanks for catching that! We apologize for the inconvenience. The recipe is now written correctly!

When a receipe is put out there for lots of us to try, IT SHOULD BE ACCURATE. Catfish Allison says 1/2 c butter (1/4 stick) Which is it? There's a big difference here. jan in WI

I think the fractions are reversed. Probably should be 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)

Just a question. I love the recipe, but exactly how much butter should I use? Help! :o)

Do you use 1/2cup or 1/4stick??

1/2 cup butter is not 1/4 stick..... but is 1 stick.

This recipe calls for "1/2 cup butter (1/4 stick)" . 1/2 cup butter is one whole stick or 1/4 pound. 1/4 stick of butter is only 2 Tbsp. or 1/8 cup. You can confuse someone who is not used to what would be a normal amount of butter to use in such a recipe. Please everyone, proofread your recipes several times before you submit them for others to try.
