  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco, or 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 1 pound catfish fillets, about 1 inch thick, cut into 4 portions


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Blend buttermilk, hot sauce (or cayenne), oregano, chili powder and garlic salt in a shallow dish. Pulse cornflakes in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to a large plate. Pulse pecans in the food processor until coarsely chopped; mix the pecans with the cornflake crumbs. (Alternatively, place cornflakes in a sealable bag and crush with a rolling pin; chop nuts with a knife.)
  3. Dip each catfish fillet in the buttermilk mixture, then dredge in the cornflake mixture, coating both sides. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake the catfish for 25 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately.
