Whip Up Your Weekend: Saute of Catfish

Whip Up Your Weekend: Catfish (Sydney Glenn/WPDE)

Sunday is National Catfish day, so Chef Geoff made an easy summer recipe featuring the farm raised fish.


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Catfish fillets cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup chopped green peppers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped tomato
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped green onion


  1. Place flour in a shallow dish or on a piece of wax paper; season with salt and pepper. Lightly coat catfish fillets with seasoned flour. Set aside on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Pour in canola oil. Add garlic and saute until lightly browned. Place catfish fillets in pan and cook over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until browned. Turn fillets over and cook 1 minute more. Add wine, peppers, tomato and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover and cook until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. Place fillets on serving plates over some rice or noodles. Add butter and green onion to sauce in skillet. Stir until blended and pour over catfish.
