Don't let the word "aioli" scare you. It's a fancy term for garlic flavored mayonnaise. By the time the fish bakes for about 20 minutes, you can have the aioli mixed and ready to serve. Another excellent low-carb meal.
1 t. dried thyme
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. paprika
1 1/2 lb. catfish fillets
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 t. fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together thyme, cayenne, and paprika and rub onto catfish. Season fish on both sides with salt and pepper.
Lightly coat a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Bake fish until opaque and cooked throughout, about 15 minutes. If your fillets are thicker, you may need to cook 4 - 5 additional minutes.
While fish is baking, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, and garlic in a small mixing bowl to make the aioli. Serve fish hot with the aioli.
