How to Make Catfish Britt


  • 1To prepare fish, wash, sprinkle with cajun seasoning then dust lightly in flour. Whisk together two eggs in deep plate, dip fish in eggs then roll in panko bread crumbs. Heat olive oil & butter in large skillet on medium high heat. Sauté the fish, about 2 minutes on each side. Place in warm oven.
  • 2Hollandaise Sauce:
    Whisk together 4 egg yolks & 1 Tablespoon lemon juice in stainless steel bowl.
    Place bowl over double boiler, continue to whisk until thick. Drizzle in melted butter. Remove from stove, add salt & pepper to taste.
  • 3Warm crabmeat in microwave. Plate fish, top with big spoonful of crabmeat. Drizzle hollandaise on top.
  • 4**Notes:
    1 fillet makes a serving. Doesn't look sufficient, but once it all comes together its more than enough. All my measurements are estimates pertaining to seasonings, panko and flour. Cajun seasonings can be very spicy, use to your individual taste.
  • 5I serve over Jasmine rice flavored with butter, parsley, lemon zest and toasted almonds.
