1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1/4 cup olive oil
4 (6-ounce) U.S. farm-raised catfish fillets
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
1/3 cup sundried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well. In a large skillet, heat the oil until hot.

2. Dip catfish fillets in flour mixture, coating completely. Cook catfish, in batches, 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden and the fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove catfish to a platter; cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.

3. Add butter to skillet, stirring until melted. Add sundried tomatoes, wine and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, stirring about 1 minute. Add lemon juice and basil, stir and spoon over catfish. Serve immediately.
