Sizzling Catfish
Ingredients
8
ounces fresh or frozen catfish fillets, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick
1
egg white, lightly beaten
1
tablespoon water
2
tablespoons yellow cornmeal
2
tablespoons finely chopped poblano pepper
1
tablespoon fine dry bread crumbs
1
tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/8
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
1
tablespoon canola oil
 
Lime wedges (optional)
Directions
  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Cut into 2 serving-size pieces, if necessary. Set aside.
  2. In a shallow dish combine egg white and water. In another shallow dish combine the cornmeal, chopped poblano pepper, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and salt. Place flour in a third shallow dish. Dip each piece of fish in flour, then in egg mixture, then coat evenly with cornmeal mixture.

  4. If desired, serve with lime wedges.
