Mustard Marinated Baked Catfish

Before you turn your nose up, hear me out. I was skeptical the first time Jon made this dish. Marinating catfish in mustard? There’s no way that will be good… of course, I wouldn’t be sharing this recipe with you if it weren’t amazing. The combination of the tangy mustard, savory bread crumbs and mild fish makes for a surprisingly mouthwatering Southern treat. We served ours with the leftover greens and asparagus we made earlier that week. Yummy!


  • 1 lb. catfish
  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp. Thyme
  • 2 cups Panko
  • 2 cups bread crumbs


Rinse and dry catfish. Salt and pepper fish on both sides. Layer 1/2 yellow mustard in bottom of glass baking dish, sprinkle with Thyme. Place fish on top of mustard and layer with remaining mustard and Thyme. Cover and marinate overnight. Remove fish from baking dish and shake off excess mustard. Mix Panko and bread crumbs in a large bowl. Dip it in bread crumbs until well coated, and place into a glass baking dish. Bake at 475 for 13-15 minutes, until bread crumbs are slightly brown.
