What You'll Need

  • 4 catfish fillets

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/4 cup diced celery

  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley (I also use dried)
  • 2 lemons thinly sliced

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Place the fillets in foil 4 inches longer than the catfish.
  3. Melt the margarine and add lemon juice, salt, pepper, carrots, celery, onions, and parsley. Sauté all for a few minutes.
  4. Divide the vegetables among the catfish fillets and top with lemon slices.
  5. Fold the foil around the fish so that the juices are held in. Arrange the foil packets on a baking pan or rimmed baking sheet.
  1. Bake for 30 minutes.
