Stuffed catfish is a delicious dish that features catfish fillets filled with a flavorful stuffing mixture. Here’s a basic recipe to get you started:


  • 4 catfish fillets
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic. Sauté until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the breadcrumbs, parsley, and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Lay the catfish fillets flat on a cutting board. Divide the stuffing mixture evenly among the fillets, spreading it over each one.
  5. Roll up each fillet, securing with toothpicks if necessary.
  6. Heat the olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the stuffed catfish fillets and sear on each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  7. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the catfish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  8. Serve the stuffed catfish hot, garnished with lemon wedges.

Feel free to adjust the stuffing ingredients to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious stuffed catfish!
