Recipe by Cyndi Lauterbach
"I was looking for a recipe for Mexican catfish and wasn't able to find exactly what I wanted, so I made my own version. I wasn't sure what it would end up like, but it tasted great."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chopped fresh cilantro
5 (5 ounce) fillets
salt and ground black pepper to taste
I made this with a few changes...I marinaded the catfish in the lime juice about 15 minutes. I baked it in 350* for 25 minutes. I followed everything else. GOOOOOD! fast and easy.
Made this with tilapia. Easy to make, decent flavor.
This was great! I bought some catfish with the intention of making another dish on this website bit just didn't feel like making it anymore. I had to cook the catfish so it wouldn't go bad and was trying to find something easy and flavorful. We used everything BUT lime because we didn't have it on hand. It still came out really great! This also makes great leftovers. We used the juice of two lemons and had it with home made mashed potatoes as a side. Next time I will eat it on a fresh bed of salad greens for lunch. Will make this again.
Oh MY GOSH!! I just finished it! It was incredible! I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil. I did it on the stove top. I made homemade guacamole, made some black beans and warm corn tortillas. WOW!!The butter sauce is delicious.
This is fast and simple to make and my family and dinner guest loved it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thanks Cyndi! I was looking for a way to oven bake 1 portion (1/2 pound) of a Turbot Filet; a mild white fish. This was perfect & went GREAT w/ the Zesty Quinoa from this site (though I used cous cous not quinoa); both had cilantro & lime & were a fresh/healthy meal after all the Christmas over-eating:) I scaled the portions to one & then per another reviewer suggestion I mixed the sauce (replacing butter w/ olive oil) & marinated the fish for 15 minutes. Then wrapped it in a foil packet (leaving room for air to cirulate a bit) & baked for 12 minutes, checking it & did another few minutes until it was to my liking. Thanks!
Very quick and easy, and delicious!!!! My both kids enjoyed it, and I will definitely make it again. Yummmm!
I made this dish last night. It was easy, quick and came out great! I drizzled some of the cilanto butter left over in the pan on the fish as well. 2 out of 3 of my kids liked it :) (haha)
I will use less butter next time. I feel like it poached in butter the first 10 minutes and I think I can reduce calories and keep flavor. The cilantro wasn't really noticeable at all. My fish fell apart, but that's my deal, probably. All in all, I will do this again.
