Fried Catfish

1/3 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon good-quality chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt -- (optional)
1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
4 catfish fillets - (5 oz ea)
Olive oil cooking spray -- as needed
2 teaspoons olive oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a shallow bowl, combine cornmeal, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt (if using), and pepper. Dredge catfish fillets in cornmeal mixture, shaking off any excess.


Lightly coat a large ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Add olive oil and place over medium-high heat. Add the catfish and sauté for about 3 minutes per side, turning once, until catfish starts to brown.


Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes, until fish flakes when tested with a fork. Serve at once.
