  1. Pat the catfish dry, and spread a layer of mustard over the surface. Place the cracked pepper onto a plate, and press the coated catfish into the pepper so it is well covered.
  2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the catfish for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes with a fork.

I used stone ground mustard and black pepper and cayenne pepper. Who would have thought that mustard would taste good on fish? But it tasted succulent and not much like mustard at all. My wife was skeptical when I told her about the mustard, but she liked it.



This was excellent. I added a little paprika and cayenne pepper to spice it up a little more.



Pretty good...used honey mustard and instead of pepper, used some Old World Central Street Seasoning from the Spice House.
