Cajun Pecan Catfish

  • Active Time 25m

Makes 4 servings

The flavors of the Louisiana bayou country come to life in McCormick Gourmet Collection Cajun Seasoning - a spicy-hot blend of peppers, onion, garlic and herbs. It’s the easy way to spark this pecan-topped baked fish.


  • 1 pound catfish fillets*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick Gourmet Collection Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet Collection Thyme Leaves
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick Gourmet Collection Parsley Flakes
  • * Also good with red snapper, grouper or other firm-fleshed fish fillets


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a shallow baking pan with nonstick cooking spray; place the fish in the pan.

Combine the oil, Cajun seasoning, lemon juice and thyme in a small bowl. Spoon or brush half the mixture over the fish.

Add the pecans, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs and parsley to the remaining oil mixture; mix well. Spoon onto the fish and spread evenly.

Bake 10-15 minutes (depending on thickness of fish), or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. If desired, garnish with lemon.
