Bayou Catfish Fillets

Here's a fairly quick-and-easy main course. The cornmeal makes it almost-fried, the spices almost-blackened and the lack of oil almost-healthy.

Bayou Catfish Fillets
From Cooking Light.
Makes 6 servings.

2 tablespoons white cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
6 (6-ounce) catfish fillets
Cooking spray

Preheat broiler.

Combine first 9 ingredients in a zip-top plastic bag. Add 1 catfish fillet. Seal bag, and shake well. Remove fillet from bag, and place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with the remaining fillets and cornmeal mixture. Broil 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes.

Carefully turn fillets over, and broil 6 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
