For the Baked Cajun Catfish:

In a shallow bowl, combine oil, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, cayenne, paprika and thyme.

Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray.

Coat fish fillets in seasoning mixture and place in baking dish, pour any remaining seasoning mixture over the fish.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, until fish flakes with a fork.

For the Collard Greens:

Prepare the greens: Wash the greens and blot lightly with paper towel.

Remove stems from larger leaves by stripping the leaf off from either side of the step (it is okay to leave the stems on the tender inner leaves).

Stack 8 leaves together, roll up, and slice into 1-inch sections.

In a large skillet, heat oil on medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent (3 minutes, stirring occasionally).

Add garlic and cook 30 seconds more.

Add, sugar, red pepper, greens, vinegar, water and Canadian bacon.

Cover and cook until tender (20 minutes).
