This is an easy and tasty baked catfish recipe from Judy Howle.


  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup carrots (diced)
  • 1/4 cup celery (diced)
  • 1/4 cup green onions (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 2 lemons (thinly sliced)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  3. Place the fillets in foil 4 inches longer than the catfish.

  4. In a saucepan, melt the margarine and add lemon juice, salt, pepper, carrots, celery, onions, and parsley. Sauté all for a few minutes.

  5. Divide the vegetables among the catfish fillets and top with lemon slices.

  6. 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.

  7. Bake for 30 minutes.

  8. Serve with a salad and French bread and enjoy.
