Fried Catfish Fillets with Piquant Sauce Recipe

Fried Catfish Fillets with Piquant Sauce Recipes

Ingredients :

1 egg

2 fl oz olive oil

squeeze of lemon juice

1/2 tsp chopped fresh dill

4 catfish fillets

1/2 cup flour

2 tbsp butter or margarine

salt and ground black pepper

For the sauce:

1 egg yolk

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp white wine vinegar

2 tsp paprika

1.25 cups olive or vegetable oil

2 tbsp prepared horseradish

1/2 tsp chopped garlic

1 celery stick, chopped

2 tbsp tomato ketchup

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 tsp salt

Method :

For the sauce, combine the egg yolk, mustard, vinegar and paprika in a mixing bowl. Add the oil in a thin stream, beating vigorously with a wire whisk to blend it in. When the mixture is smooth and thick, beat in all the other sauce ingredients. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Combine the egg, 1 tbsp olive oil, the lemon juice, dill and a little salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Beat until well combined. Dip both sides of each catfish fillet in the egg and herb mixture, then coat lightly with flour, shaking off any excess from it.

Heat the butter or margarine with the remaining olive oil in a large heavy-based frying pan. Add the fish fillets and fry until they are golden brown on both sides and cooked, for about 8-10 minutes. To test they are into the fish: the flesh should be opaque in the centre. Serve the fried catfish fillets hot, accompanied by the piquant sauce in a dish.

Serves 4

Spicy fillets or catfish are fried in a herby batter and served with a wonderfully tasty sauce to create this excellent supper dish. If you can't find catfish, use any firm fish fillets instead. Cod or haddock fillets would both make good substitutes.
