Buy only farmed catfish to avoid the muddy taste they often have.

CATFISH with BROWNED BUTTER

Wash and dry the catfish fillets.

Dredge in flour, shaking off excess flour. Sprinkle lightly with cayenne.

Heat oil and butter. Fry the fillets over moderate heat, turning once and seasoning with the salt (at least 10 minutes altogether).

Serve over white rice with the nicely browned “butter” poured over.

Serves 2
