Directions

  1. Preheat broiler to 500 degrees. Coat a broiling pan with nonstick cooking spray. Brush both sides of fillets with lemon juice, and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place fillets flat side up on prepared pan.
  2. In a small bowl, mix Parmesan cheese, butter, and mayonnaise.
  3. Broil fish about 4 inches from heat for 6 minutes. Remove pan from oven, and turn fillets over. Spread the cheese mixture evenly over each fillet. Top with tomato slices. Broil an additional 4 to 6 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Wow. I was pretty skeptical about this recipe. ("Tuscan"? I don't think so!) But the reviews were so glowing...and boy were they right. The crispy, toasty parmesan crust was a perfect match for the catfish, which was wonderfully tender. (I left off the tomatoes to make sure the cooking was even.) Quick, easily, and absolutely delicious. One note -- definitely pay attention to the instruction to place the fish 4 inches from the broiler, not right by the flames!

Although the topping by itself tasted good, I didn't like it with catfish. I like catfish a lot, just not this way. The dish might taste really good with a milder tasting fish like sole or red snapper, so I might try it again with one of those fishes, but definitely not with catfish.

This was really tasty. The fish didn't get cooked with the tomato slices on top, so I shoved them to the side. I had to keep it in the broiler for three additional minutes. It took six minutes on each side for exposed catfish to cook. I added mushrooms. I'll definitely make this again!

I am a big catfish fan, actually most all fish. This hit the spot this evening. I noticed I had some frozen fillets in the freezer and had all the other ingredients. About 25 minutes later, I was enjoying my supper. I didn't alter the recipe, which is my tendancy on the second and third tries. As-is, this is a winner. I wil try it with mahi-mahi or grouper next.

Very good and very easy to make. My husband loved it. I didn't have lemon juice but used Italian Dressing instead to lightly coat the catfish.

This was very good and quick. My only suggestion is to put the tomatoes on the side while broiling so the whole top of the fish gets a bit crispy.

I never buy catfish, but it was half off at the store so I decided to give it a shot. I was looking for something quick to make myself for lunch and decided to use the catfish because I wasn't sure if I made it for my family if my kids would like it. Well, let me just tell you, it was quick, easy, and scrumptious!! I am definitely keeping this one! One of my daughters asked for a bite and then ended up eating half of it!

This was easy and very tasty. I rinsed and patted dry the filets and doused them with the lemon juice. Then I baked them for 15 minutes at 400. The plum tomatoes didn't look any good at the store so I bought grape tomatoes instead and used those. I washed them and cut them in half. I mixed them into the parm/butter/mayo mix and I added in some dried italian seasoning, then spread it on top of the fish and broiled the whole thing like that. If you like fish try this dish!
