Kitchen Concoctions:

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Serves 4

2 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 1/2 pounds catfish or tilapia fillets, cut into serving pieces

1 cup cornmeal

1 1/2 tablespoons Creole seasoning

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce

1/2 teaspoon each seasoned salt and black pepper, or more as needed

Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 13x9 glass baking dish with the oil, and set aside.

Rinse the catfish fillets, and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. In a shallow bowl, combine the cornmeal and creole seasoning. Combine the eggs and hot sauce in a another bowl. Dip the fillets in the egg mixture, dredge in the cornmeal mixture, and place in the prepared baking dish.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through and golden brown. Turn once during cooking. Place catfish on a paper-towel lined plate, and serve immediately with additional hot sauce.
