What you’ll need:

  • 4 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets, 2-3 ounces
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, add salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil (option: ½ olive oil and ½ canola oil mixture)
  • 4 (4-inch) rolls, split or French bread cut into 4-inch pieces
  • ½ cup prepared pesto sauce (Basil pesto can be found in the jarred spaghetti section of the grocery store)
  • 8 jarred roasted red pepper halves (or sliced roasted red peppers)
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 8 thin slices provolone cheese

How to prepare:

In separate shallow bowls, place egg and breadcrumbs. Dip each catfish fillet into egg; then coat in breadcrumbs, shaking off excess.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. (375º F for an electric skillet). Cook the fillets, a few at a time until golden brown and opaque in center, about 3 minutes on each side; drain on paper towels. Spread cut sides of the rolls with pesto.

On bottoms of rolls, layer roasted red peppers, lettuce leaves and provolone; top each with a catfish fillet. Place roll tops on fish.
