Meeeow. Baked cajun catfish.

Yes…still on this stupid diet which actually isn’t so stupid anymore since it’s actually working. I suppose it’s just stupid because I hate being the kind of person who has to say things like “instead of the potatoes, do you think you could bring me steamed veggies?” …GOD I HATE BEING LIKE THIS. I really do. Please believe me or I will strangle you. Even though I would probably strangle you either way since my body is lacking carbs which makes me terribly irritable.

I’ve found myself at home more, since I don’t go out for elaborate meals with friends and drink margaritas that cause me to have “second dinner” at 1am at some fluorescently-lit corner pizza joint. So when I find a recipe like this, that makes me forget those nights existed, I share : )

Found it from googling “baked catfish”. I’m a genius like that.

Here are my photos, then the recipe is below. REALLY ridiculously simple and completely satisfying.



ten minutes later…


..served with sesame-oil veggies and those chipotle shrimps I’m obsessed with…
