Catfish Allison

Fish and Seafood


1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
6 Tbsp. mayonnaise
6 green onions, chopped fine
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Generous dash Tabasco
6 to 8 catfish fillets


Combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Butter mixture may be made 24 hours ahead and kept refrigerated. Poach catfish fillets in lightly simmering water for 4 to 5 minutes. Gently lift fillets from the water and set aside to drain. For individual servings, place fillets in au gratin dishes and cover with 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture. Broil for 2 or 3 minutes, until the cheese mixture browns. Or, place fillets into a lightly sprayed baking dish. Cover each fillet with the cheese mixture and brown under the broiler. Carefully lift fillets from the dish onto plates and spoon some of the pan juices over each serving. Serves 6 to 8.
