Recipe by IHeartDogs
READY IN: 40mins




  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and place oven rack in upper third of oven.
  • To make the stuffing, in a large skillet heat butter and oil over medium heat.
  • Add shallots and saute until softened, not brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms and saute until tender and most liquid has evaporated, 5-8 minutes.
  • Add wine and stir until almost all evaporated.
  • Sprinkle mushrooms with flour and stir well to incorporate, 2-3 minutes.
  • Raise heat to high, toss in the spinach and add cream to skillet cooking to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened.
  • Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice, cayenne, cashews and salt.
  • Mix well, as the mixture will be somewhat thick, taste, and adjust salt if necessary, keeping in mind that if you are using salted cashews you may need less salt.
  • Butter or spray a baking dish and divide stuffing into two separate mounds and top each with a catfish fillet.
  • Sprinkle fillets with breadcrumbs if using, then drizzle with melted butter.
  • Bake in upper third of oven for 15-20 minutes, until fish flakes easily around the edges.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
