  • 2 catfish fillets (6-8 oz each)

  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed

  • 2 cups mixed greens (e.g., spinach, kale, arugula)

  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided

  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Optional: fresh herbs for garnish (e.g., parsley, dill, chives)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.

  2. Pat the catfish fillets dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and pepper. Place the fillets on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon of olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Drizzle the mixture over the catfish fillets.

  4. Bake the catfish in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).

  5. While the catfish is baking, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the asparagus and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Season with salt and pepper.

  6. Add the mixed greens to the skillet with the asparagus and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until the greens are wilted and heated through.

  7. To serve, divide the baked catfish, asparagus, and greens between two plates. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.
