Directions

  1. Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir green onions, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper in the hot oil until vegetables are softened, about 2 minutes. Stir lemon juice and 1/4 cup brown sugar into green onion mixture, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes more.
  2. Place catfish fillets into the skillet; cook until catfish easily flakes with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer catfish to a plate and pour remaining lemon juice sauce on top. Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar.

Delicious! I didn't use the garlic and brown sugar because I didn't have time to go to the store, but it was still good and the family loved it!

This is so good! I didn't have any brown sugar so I left it out and I also didn't have green onion so I used regular white onion and added just a pinch of paprika instead which added a little kick to it! With out the sugar the lemon stands out but I served it over plain white rice to balance out the intense flavors. Overall, delicious!
