"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."

  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir cilantro and garlic into the melted butter; cook about 1 minute.
  2. Season catfish fillets with salt and black pepper; lay gently into the butter mixture. Place a cover on the skillet. Cook fillets 10 minutes, turn, and continue cooking until the fish flakes easily with a fork and is lightly browned, about 10 minutes more. Squeeze lemon juice and lime juice over the fillets to serve.

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.

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)
