Oven "Fried" Catfish

This is a good way to "fry" any type of fish that one might otherwise fry. (doesn't have to just be catfish) My take on Chef Paul's recipe made the seasoning mix per Fork in the Road.

Seasoning mix
1 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp sweet basil
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp cayenne

Catfish filets
1/2 cup read crumbs (toasted)
2 Tb parsley (fresh finely chopped, minced)
3 Tb finely sliced green onions
1 Tb olive oil
Combine seasoning mix in small bowl. Sprinkle evenly on all surfaces of  the fish 4 tsp only. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Combine the bread crumbs, parsley, green onions with the rest of the seasoning mix, add the oil combining it with your fingers until all the crumbs are moist. "Dredge" the fillets by carefully patting/pressing the crumbs to the fish flesh. Softly shake off any excess crumbs. Place into a non stick baking dish/sheet display side up.  Bake about 6 minutes, turn fish over and bake 6 more minutes.  Turn fillets over one last time  (display side up) cook 'til done. (4 more minutes) Serve straight away.
