What to do with catfish fillets

I have a couple catfish fillets that are marinated in the stores cajun seasonings. How would you cook these? Usually when i grill i have the skin side down, but no skin here. Im trying to avoid frying also. Catfish is very unfamiliar to me as well, think ive had it once before maybe

    Pan or deep frying is all I know for catfish.
    1 cup Bisquick or equivalent.
    1 egg
    Enough beer to make it moist.
    Corn flakes if you have them and want crunchy crust.
    Good eats!

    Battered and fried is the only way to go.

    Blackened in a skillet is good too.

    Cubed and fried!  I live cat fish bites!
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Choupique recipe, if you ever get your hands on choupique, this is a good one.  Scale the fish and season as you would for baking fish.  Set the whole fish in a greased baking dish.  Place potatoes and carrots around the fish in a liberal manner, onions go well also.  Bake the dish @450deg for one hour.  Remove from the oven, remove the fish and throw in the garbage, eat the vegetables.  Bon appetite!  :)

    To really bring out the flavor of catfish I like to marinate it overnight in a bowl of mud, then season with clumps of mud followed by a shallow pan-fry in clarified mud. Serve it along side a nice pan sauce of mud.
