Baked Garlic Wine Catfish


  • 1 lb. catfish fillets
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp white wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Arrange your catfish in a baking dish that is large enough that the fillets won’t be touching each other. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.

Put a saucepan on a burner on your stove and add the butter, wine, garlic, lemon juice and cilantro. Turn the heat on medium and simmer the sauce for a few minutes until it has reduced and thickened.

Pour the sauce over the fish.

Add a garnish of sliced lemons over the fillets.

Put the fish in the oven. If you are cooking fillets, you will want to set your timer for 20 minutes. You’ll know for sure that your fish is done if it flakes when you stick a fork in it.

Note: Pairs well with steamed green vegetables (ie. broccoli, asparagus, brussel sprouts, or green beans) and blanched carrots or steamed new potatoes.
