• ​1/2 cup ranch salad dressing

  • 1 (6-ounce) package barbecue-flavored potato chips, crushed

  • 4 (6-ounce) Delta Pride catfish fillets (about 1-1/2 pounds)

  • 1-1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed

  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced

  • 3 scallions, sliced

  • Juice from 1 lime

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons tequila (optional)


Serves 4


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

Place ranch dressing in a shallow dish. Place potato chips in another shallow dish. Dip catfish fillets into dressing, then into potato chips, coating completely on both sides; place on baking sheet.

Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until fish is firm in center and the coating is crispy and golden.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine corn, bell pepper, scallions, lime juice, salt, black pepper, and tequila, if desired; mix well. Serve corn relish over catfish.
