This baked catfish is a one dish meal. We are going to bake the fish over a layer of sliced potatoes and onions and then cover it with sour cream and salsa.
You can really use any white, fleshy fish for this recipe. Tilapia, sole,Mahi-Mahi or hake would work perfectly fine as well. It does no need to be catfish.
I used my homemade salsa for this recipe but you do not need to. You can buy your favorite one and use that instead. No worries.
Make sure the potato slices are not too thick. You want them to cook with the fish. If you make them too thick you will have over cooked fish or under cooked potatoes.
4 large (about 3 oz. each) catfish fillets
6 small red potatoes, sliced (about 1 cup sliced potatoes)
1/2 large yellow or brown onion, sliced
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup salsa
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Layer an oven proof dish with the sliced potatoes. Top with the onions. Place the catfish on the onions. Season the fish with the lemon juice and salt and pepper. Using a spatula, spread the sour cream on the fish. Cover with the salsa and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, until fish is cooked through.
Using a spatula scoop out every fillet carefully, including all of the potatoes. Serve.
