Fresh Thyme and Garlic Broiled Catfish

Our family likes to cook something pretty easy during the weekend , occasionally , we like to make something complicated , just because everyone can pitch in and help . But not today , we chose to cook something simple , easy and quick . So we landed our choice to broiled catfish . Seafood is so cheap over here , and it’s kinda nice to be able to eat more seafood !!

This broiled catfish doesn’t take long to prepare , doesn’t take long to cook either . I partly broiled the catfish then baked it . It was pretty yummy , my 7 years old demands me to cook this more often ! LOL  I served this with steamed potatoes , and collard greens .

4 – 6 oz. catfish

4 garlic cloves , minced
