The Deen Bros. Lighter Saucy Catfish

394 Fewer Calories
33 g Less Fat

1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
3/4 teaspoon Paula Deen House Seasoning
1 teaspoon canola oil
4 (5-ounce) catfish fillets
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 lemon, cut into wedges (optional)

To make the sauce, whisk together the ketchup, mayonnaise, broth, scallions, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire, mustard, and 1/4 teaspoon House Seasoning in a medium bowl until blended.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the fish with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of House Seasoning.  Add the fillets and sauté 3 minutes on each side or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Transfer the fillets to a platter.

Add the sauce mixture to the pan; bring to a gentle simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the fillets. Sprinkle with the parsley and garnish with the lemon wedges if using.

Test Kitchen Tip:
Other firm, white-fleshed fish can be used in place of the catfish. Tilapia, red snapper, cod, or sole are all good choices.
