Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup TABASCO® brand Green Jalapeño Pepper Sauce
  • 1 (15-ounce) container dry bread crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 6 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 10 catfish fillets
  • 2 pounds bacon, preferably maple-flavored
  • 8 lemons
  • 1 (5-ounce) bottle TABASCO® brand Habanero Sauce

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Start by combining the eggs with TABASCO® Green Sauce and blending thoroughly. Pour breadcrumbs into a large mixing bowl with garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Mix thoroughly.

Wrap bacon around fillets of catfish and dip into egg mixture, then place into breadcrumb mixture, making sure every part is covered. Place on a greased pan, then drizzle TABASCO® Habanero Sauce on top of each fillet of fish in an “S” pattern.

Fish normally bakes in about 25 minutes, but with bacon wrapped around it, bake in oven for 45 minutes or until bacon is crispy and fish is flaky. Place on plates and serve with squeezed lemons and the remaining TABASCO® Habanero Sauce.

Makes 10 servings.
