  • 4-5

    Delta Pride deep skin catfish fillets

  • Salt (preferably sea salt)

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • Minced fresh dill or dried dill weed

  • Lemon juice

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • ½

    stick (¼ cup) butter


Sprinkle catfish fillets with salt, pepper, dill and lemon juice to taste. Pour olive oil into a skillet and heat over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add butter and, as soon as it melts, add fillets. Saute fillets for 4-6 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes with a fork. If fish seems dry when turning, melt more butter and add with lemon juice. This is important to keep fish moist. Makes 4-5 servings. Tip: This recipe works well on a grill and in a closed-lid cooker such as a George Foreman. Place fillets in foil to keep all the liquids around the fish.
