Catfish 'n' Biscuits



Ingredients

6 tablespoons butter, divided
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 onions, thinly sliced
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 US farm-raised catfish fillets, cut in half
1 (10.2-ounce) package refrigerated biscuits, cooked according to package directions

Directions

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 3 tablespoons butter and the oil until butter has melted and oil is hot. Saute onions, celery, bell pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper 15 minutes, or until onions begin to caramelize. Remove vegetables to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
In a small bowl, mix Old Bay Seasoning and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle mixture evenly on both sides of fish.
In the same skillet, over medium heat, melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter. Saute fish in batches 8 to 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning once when browned.
Place 2 fish halves on bottom of each biscuit, top with vegetable mixture, then place top of biscuit over mixture and serve.
