Delta-Style Catfish

Very crispy and crunchy. Keep an eye on it though. It burns easily.

3 cups cornflakes cereal, finely crushed
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
6 (4- to 6-oz.) catfish or tilapia fillets
1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
Vegetable cooking spray
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Garnish: lemon wedges

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large shallow bowl or pie plate. Whisk together mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl.

2. Brush mayonnaise mixture onto both sides of catfish fillets. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning onto 1 side of each fillet.

3. Dredge fillets in cornflake mixture; transfer to a wire rack coated with cooking spray. Place wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined pan.

4. Bake 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown and fish flakes with a fork. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.
