Frequently asked questions:

What type of ovensafe baking dish should I use?

You can use a glass baking dish, a metal baking dish, a ceramic baking dish, or a cast-iron skillet.

-Can I substitute the parsley for another herb?

Yes, you can substitute the parsley for another herb, such as dill or thyme.

-How can I tell when the fish is cooked?

You can tell when the fish is cooked when it flakes easily and is opaque in color.  With Delta Pride Catfish, one end of the fillet is thicker than the other.  You must test the thicker end of the fillet.

Some good side dishes to pair with this dish are mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a salad.
