1 bag (3.5 ounces) lightly salted or garlic pepper crispy onions
2-1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, divided
3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
4 fresh catfish, swai or tilapia fillets (about 1-1/2 pounds)

1/2 small red onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 jar (4 ounces) diced pimientos, drained

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray large rimmed baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. On large sheet of waxed paper, spread onions. With bottom of measuring cup, coarsely crush onions. You should have about 1-1/4 cups. Stir in 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning. In pie plate, stir together mayonnaise and hot sauce. Dip catfish fillets, 1 at a time, in mayonnaise mixture, turning to coat both sides. Place each filet over onions, turning to coat both sides and pressing lightly so they adhere.

Add pimientos, frozen corn and remaining 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning and cook 5 to 6 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove skillet from heat; stir in basil. Makes about 2-1/3 cups succotash.
