CATFISH PAN-SEARED WITH BROWN BUTTER, PROSCIUTTO, LEMON, ALMONDS, AND CAPERS ON BLACK-OLIVE TOAST

Suggested wine: Steele Pinot Blanc from California, Erath Pinot Gris from Oregon, Whitehall Lane Sauvignon Blanc from California

    Ingredients
    Black-Olive Toast
    1 3.8-oz. can sliced ripe olives, drained and minced
    1½ tsp. coarse mustard
    1½ tsp. olive oil
    4 slices French bread, ½-inch thick

    Catfish
    4 U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets, 4-6 ounces each, ½-inch thick
    2 tsp. olive oil
    1 tsp. hot sauce
    1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    2 Tbsp. butter
    2 oz. prosciutto or country ham, julienned
    1 Tbsp. capers, rinsed and chopped
    3 Tbsp. sliced almonds, toasted


Directions

1. To make Black-Olive Toast:
In a small bowl, mix together olives, mustard, and olive oil. Set aside.

2. To make catfish:
Heat oven to 250°F. In a small bowl, stir together olive oil, hot sauce, and lemon juice. Brush on both sides of catfish. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add catfish fillets, two at a time. Cook about 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until brown, turning only once. Repeat with remaining catfish fillets. Transfer to a baking dish and keep warm in a 250°F oven.

3. Over medium heat, melt butter in the same skillet. When lightly brown, add prosciutto and sauté for about 1 minute. Remove from heat; add capers and almonds.

4. Just before serving, toast French bread and spread with black-olive mixture. Place a piece of toast on each plate, top with catfish, and spoon prosciutto-butter sauce over catfish. Makes 4 servings.
