1 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup sesame seeds
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
4 fillets catfish fillets - -- (6 to 8 oz ea)
1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs -- lightly beaten
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons sesame oil

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350F In a shallow dish, stir together the bread crumbs, sesame seeds, and parsley. Dredge the catfish fillets in the flour, shaking off the excess. Then dip them in the eggs, and coat them with the crumb mixture. In a large skillet with an ovenproof handle, heat the vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil over medium-high heat and sauté the fillets, turning them once, for 1 minute, or until they are golden. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven. Bake the fillets for 12 to 15 minutes, or until they are cooked through, and arrange them on a heated platter over a bed of braised spinach. In a small saucepan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and drizzle it over the catfish. Serve hot. Comments: Sesame adds a distinctive flavor to any dish, although you might want to use a little less sesame oil than the recipe calls for.
