  • 4 catfish fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup strawberry spreadable fruit
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon seafood cocktail sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated horseradish
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Sprinkle catfish with salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce; set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the spreadable fruit, vinegar, seafood sauce, soy sauce, horseradish and garlic. Cook over low heat until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour and cornmeal. Add catfish, one fillet at a time, and shake to coat. In a large nonstick skillet, cook fillets in oil over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on paper towels. Serve with strawberry sauce.
