I thought we were done with the cold weather. Yesterday we were in the 80s but today, we woke up and it was freezing. Since we did not have any particular plans, we stayed in, warm, cozy, and happy.
Sunday dinner is always quality time for our family. Today is no different. Our meal was simple and delicious. I made a beautiful pecan crusted blue catfish which I served with a delicious baked pasta with vegetables.
Pecan Crusted Blue Catfish
1 1/2 lbs. Blue Catfish fillets (4 fillets)
1 cup flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
1 cup + 2 tbsp milk
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp minced Fresh Thyme
1 cup finely minced pecans
Salt and pepper
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Lemon wedges for garnish and lemon zest
- Soak catfish fillet in 1 cup cold milk for 1 hour, discard milk and pat dry.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Mix 2 tbsp milk, mustard, thyme, and lemon zest. Dip catfish in flour shaking off excess flour, next in milk and mustard mixture, dip fish in toasted pecans, place into a shallow baking buttered dish.
- Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Bake uncovered in ore heated oven for 10 to 12 minutes until done. Garnish with lemon wedges
I hope your Sunday was as quiet as mine and most importantly filled with love and simple pleasure.
I love pecan crusted fish! Your recipe looks oh so delicious and easy to make, thanks for sharing!
It was my first time, making it, Chef Dennis, and we all like it at home.
The catfish looks great! I’ve never made it before. Why do you soak it in milk?
Stephanie, apparently doing so, remove the fishy taste and smell. I also have another recipe for liver which calls for soaking it in milk as well.
Ugh, this weather is ridiculous! I had to turn the heater back on this weekend. I have never had the heat on in April! I’ve also never thought of crusting a fish with pecans, this sounds interesting and something we will have to give a try!
Same here, Stephanie, I have my heat on. I can no longer take the cold weather.
The weather here has been crazy. Sunday dinners are always my favourite, we enjoy good food and the company of each other. It’s the one day we usually slow down to do so. This looks fantastic. I love pecan crust on fish. Thanks for sharing
Same here, Laura, we all have a different schedule, but Sunday is our special time to enjoy each other.
This dish looks so easy to make but yield such a delightfully tasty result!My grandmother has a different kind of menu for catfish but tempted to try this recipe!
I always love to try new recipes and would love to hear your grandma prepares her catfish, Stephanie.
Sounds pretty interesting, looks good too and I love your plates!!!
Thank you, Jillian!
this looks so yummy! Even though i dont consume animal products I can take the whole concept and try to recreate it with seitan or something! Tofu maybe?
Just like you, Chelf, I take pleasure to recreate recipe to my own like. Let me know how you recreate.
Though I don’t eat meat products but the men in our family does!!! Your dish looks amazing, I have to share this with them, I’m sure they’ll love it! 🙂
Thank you, Anshika.

I love seafood in general, Kimberley.

Can’t wait to try this!! And oooooh, that vegetable pasta looks delectable as well!!

Normally, I don’t like seafood but this looks really yummy. I know some family who’d love to try this.
In my house, we could live on seafood alone, we love seafood. One of my besties does not eat seafood, it’s still a mystery to me, but we have fun eating together.
Catfish is basically the only fish I will eat! This sounds amazing and I will definitely have to keep it in mind for a new recipe!!
Enjoy and if you had your touch to the recipe, share with me, Nikki!
I love catfish and this sounds amazing! I also love anything coated in pecans! I will definitely have to try the next time my Dad catches some catfish!

Thank you, Melissa, hope you like it.
Looks delicious! I’ve never had catfish before – don’t even know you can get it in the UK! Is it easy to get hold of where you are? What’s the fish like?..
You can substitute the catfish with another type of fish, Aaron!
This looks delicious. I love catfish and will definitely give this recipe a try.
