If you're looking for a meal that can be on the table in less than 30 minutes, I'm going to share another one with you.
I know there are those blog readers who do NOT like spicy food. I understand. However, there are those of you who LOVE and ADORE spicy food. So even though the catfish fillets are lightly coated in a very hot cayenne olive oil, these are not mouth burning hot. More of a gentle heat that sneaks up on you one bite at a time.
This Red Cayenne Chili Oil is made by crushing 12 pounds of fresh, whole, ripe cayenne chilies for each gallon produced. The oil and chilies are fused together for two hours before decanting and filtering.
1 lb. catfish fillets
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Rinse catfish fillets and pat dry with paper towels.
Place catfish on baking sheet and lightly drizzle with the chili oil. Spread the chili oil evenly over the catfish with a brush.
Sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and chili powder.
Bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
Serve immediately with lemon slices.
