6 fillets catfish fillets -- (5 to 8) 5 oz
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup egg wash -- (1 egg, 1/2 cup water -- 1/2 cup milk)
1/2 cup unseasoned flour
1/4 cup andouille sausage -- julienne
1 teaspoon garlic
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped green onions
24 medium fresh shucked oysters
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon white pepper
4 slices cold butter

Preparation / Directions:

In a ten inch heavy bottom sauté pan, heat oil over medium high heat. Blend egg wash to ensure that egg, milk and water are well mixed. Dip catfish fillets into egg wash and then into flour, coating evenly on all sides. Sauté fish, three fillets at a time, until golden brown, approximately three to five minutes on each side. Once cooked, remove and keep warm. In the same sauté pan, add andouille, garlic, mushrooms and green onions and sauté until vegetables are wilted, approximately three to five minutes. Add oysters and sauté until their edges are curly. Deglaze with white wine, add heavy whipping cream and cook until sauce is slightly thickened. Season to taste using salt and white pepper. Once sauce has thickened, swirl in butter chips, two at a time, until all is incorporated. The butter will finish the sauce to a nice sheen. Place two to three ounces of oyster butter in the center of a serving plate and top with catfish fillet. Garnish with four cooked oysters per serving.
