Piccatas are a classic part of Italian cuisine and include a refreshing sauce of lemon juice, butter, and fresh parsley.


  • 1 9 to 12 oz. skinless catfish fillet, cut into 2 serving pieces
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1/16 tsp pepper
  • 1 Tbs flour
  • 1 Tbs butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs minced parsley
  • 4 thin slices lemon for garnish


  • Pat catfish dry. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour, shaking off excess. Measure thickness of fish at thickest part to estimate cooking time; allow 10 minutes per inch of thickness.
  • Heat butter in a nonstick skillet over moderate heat until it bubbles. Add fish and cook for 3 minutes. Turn fish and continue cooking until fish flakes when tested with a fork.
  • Remove to warm plates. Add lemon juice and parsley to pan; cook 30 seconds, stirring to loosen contents in the pan. Pour over hot fish. Garnish with lemon slices.
