  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon each cumin, onion powder, salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground oregano
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  • Rinse fish under cold water. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Adjust an oven rack to the top third of the oven and preheat broiler.
  • In a small bowl, combine cumin, onion powder, salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, and oregano. Sprinkle fish on both sides with spice mixture.
  • Add catfish fillets to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Remove from heat and add lime juice and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Place pan under broiler and continue to cook until fish is firm and cheese is melted, about 2-3 additional minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to sit for two minutes.
