Healthy Herb-Baked Catfish Nuggets w/ Baked Potato

Today's Menu: Healthy Herb-Baked Catfish Nuggets w/ Baked Potato

Tried a new recipe for dinner tonight, Healthy Herb-Baked Catfish Nuggets. I had picked up the Catfish Nuggets earlier this morning while at Jungle Jim's Market. You can't go in Jungle Jim's without hitting the Seafood Department! I preheated the oven at 400 degrees. After washing the nuggets and patting dry I dipped them in a Egg Beaters and Lemon Juice mixture. Shaking off the excess I then rolled them in a Bread Crumb, Dill, Basil, and Oregano mix again shaking off the excess and layed them on a foil lined baking sheet. Baked them for 18 minutes, turning them over after 9 minutes. They came out great! Baking Catfish is healthy alternative to frying. The combination of all the Herbs gave the Catfish a delicious flavor. I left the recipe at the end of the post. If you like Catfish try baking them instead of frying them next time. I left the full recipe at the end of the post. For a side I had a Baked potato seasoned with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. No clue on a dessert or snack later.
