Ingredients Nutrition


  • 1 (6 -8 ounce) fillet catfish, cod, flounder (or other whitefish)
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (I use Seafood Magic)
  • salt & pepper
  • lemon slice
  • onion, slices
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • flour (for dredging)
  • breadcrumbs (for dredging)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (for frying)

  • 1 -2 tablespoon butter
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 12 onion, sliced
  • 14 cup mushroom broth
  • 14 teaspoon dried marjoram (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream


  1. Rinse the fish fillet and pat dry. Season with seafood seasoning: about a 1/3 teaspoons on each side. Rub it inches Sprinkle with a little salt & pepper.
  2. In a dish layer the sliced onions under the fish and lay the lemon sliced on top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. After an hour, discard the lemon and onion slices.
  4. Dredge the fish in flour, then egg and lastly the breadcrumbs.
  5. Heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add the fish, cooking on both sides about 5 minutes or so (or until done) being careful not to burn.
  6. For the sauce: Melt butter over medium heat and add the onions. Cook for a couple minutes then add the mushrooms and cover, cooking for about 5 minutes. Add the broth and marjoram, simmer uncovered until most of the liquid evaporates. Stir in the sour cream and simmer on low until it's a gravy-like consistency.
  7. Season the fish with fresh lemon juice and smother with the mushroom-onion sauce. Serve immediately.
