what you need
  • 1 pound American Pride catfish fillets
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs plus more for coating cakes
  • 1 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Vegetable oil and butter for frying
make it
Place catfish fillets in a single layer in a large saucepan or Dutch oven and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer over low heat on stovetop. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool in stock.

In a heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat on stovetop. Add flour, whisking constantly for 2 to 3 minutes. Gradually add milk, whisking until smooth. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in Old Bay seasoning, salt, pepper, mustard, and garlic powder.

In a bowl, flake catfish fillets. Add cream sauce, 1-1/2 cups bread crumbs, bell pepper, green onion, lemon juice, and pepper sauce. Shape catfish mixture into cakes. Coat with additional bread crumbs.

In a heavy skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter per batch over medium heat on stovetop until butter is melted. Cook catfish cakes for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining catfish cakes.
