    10. Pour into greased baking pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350°-375° or until preferred texture. 

    Let the mixture cool and blacken the catfish filets. Place mixture on top of one filet and then place other filet on top. Heat cast iron pan with olive oil and place the catfish in the unit with the drawer being mid way on the unit. With a hot pan the catfish will cook from both sides with a time of 3-4 minutes.
