A fast and easy but tasty and delicious catfish preparation with bite. You can vary the recipe by adding a layer of honey or using honey mustard. Also great with tuna!
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 4 whole catfish, cleaned with head and tail removed
- 1/2 cup prepared yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup cracked black pepper
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup butter
Pat the catfish dry, and spread a layer of mustard over the surface. Place the cracked pepper onto a plate, and press the coated catfish into the pepper so it is well covered.
Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the catfish for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes with a fork.
