Barbecue Chip Catfish

Barbecue Chip Catfish Recipe

Using barbecue chips, makes this one of the tastiest fish dishes you have ever eaten!


  • 1/2 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 1 (6-ounce) package barbecue-flavored potato chips, crushed
  • 4 (6-ounce) U.S. farm-raised catfish fillets (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1-1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tequila (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Place ranch dressing in a shallow dish. Place potato chips in another shallow dish. Dip catfish fillets into dressing, then into potato chips, coating completely on both sides; place on baking sheet.
  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until fish is firm in center and the coating is crispy and golden.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine corn, bell pepper, scallions, lime juice, salt, black pepper, and tequila, if desired; mix well. Serve corn relish over catfish.

Serves 4.
