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