serves 4

Cooking Time: 20 min

What You'll Need:
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons hot sauce
4 (4- to 6-ounce) U.S. Farm-Raised catfish fillets
1 stick butter, divided
3 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 cup frozen baby lima beans, thawed
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons olive oil

What To Do:
1. In a 9- x 13-inch baking dish, combine buttermilk and hot sauce. Place catfish in mixture, turning to coat on all sides; set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over high heat, melt 4 tablespoons butter. Add corn, lima beans, red pepper, onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Saute 8 to 10 minutes, or until vegetables begin to caramelize, stirring occasionally.

3. In a shallow dish, combine cornmeal, remaining salt, and remaining black pepper. Remove catfish from marinade and coat with cornmeal mixture.

4. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt remaining butter with oil. Saute catfish 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden and crisp. Serve topped with succotash.
