The Love Chef


Seafood Recipes


            4 ears husked fresh supersweet corn
            3 tablespoons Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup soy flour
½ cup breadcrumbs
½ teaspoon fennel seeds
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon white pepper
            4 catfish fillets 6 to 8 ounces (U.S. farm raised preferred)
            Fresh sprigs cilantro, for garnish
            Salt, if desired

Serves 4

In a large skillet sear corn in 1 tablespoon of the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Remove corn when golden; set aside.

Mix the flour with the breadcrumbs, fennel seeds, paprika and white pepper; dredge the catfish in the flour mixture, and add the remaining Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the skillet. Sauté the catfish on each side until golden, about 2 to 4 minutes, adding additional Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, if needed. Serve with corn and garnish with cilantro.
