READY IN: 45mins




  • Combine the catfish fillets and milk in a large dish; cover and chill for 2 hours.
  • Cook the pecans in 1/4 cup melted butter in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly for 5 minutes; add the green onions, and cook 2 additional minutes. Remove the mixture from the skillet; set aside.
  • Combine the flour, paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, ground red pepper, ground white pepper, black pepper, dried thyme, and dried oregano. Dredge the fillets in the flour mixture.
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. (Unless your stove runs hot, then reduce to medium) Add 4 fillets, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. (You are just browning the fillets, they shouldn't be flaky yet). Remove fillets to a 4 quart shallow baking dish. Repeat the procedure with the remaining 1/4 cup butter and fillets.
  • Pour the lime juice over the fillets and top with the pecan mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.
