What you’ll need:

  • 4 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • ½ cup capers
  • ½ cup butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, roughly chopped for garnish

How to prepare:

Combine egg and milk in a small shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. In a third shallow bowl, place panko.

Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Dip catfish fillet in flour mixture, then egg wash, then panko. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, turn over and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining fillets.

Add garlic to hot pan, and sauté for 30 seconds. Add white wine, and simmer for 3 minutes. Add lemon juice, zest and capers; simmer until reduced to ¼ cup. Remove from heat; whisk in cold butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and garnish with parsley. Spoon over fillets.
