1/4
cup chopped green onions
1/4
cup finely chopped red or green bell pepper
1

  • 1 Sprinkle catfish fillets with salt and pepper; place in 13x9-inch (3-quart) microwave-safe baking dish. Cover with microwave-safe waxed paper. Microwave on HIGH for 5 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.
