Catfish Piccata and Fresh Fettuccine with Spinach

Catfish Piccata and Fresh Fettuccine with Spinach

This is a quick 15 minute dinner and the fresh pasta only takes about 3-4 minutes to cook. It’s light, fresh and full of flavor with the lemon zest and juice.  I lightly floured the catfish and pan seared it with some butter and olive oil and cooked it on both sides.  Then I put it on a plate and wrapped some foil over while I continued with the dish.  I added a little butter to the skillet and added some garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, rosemary and a tiny pinch of red pepper flakes before I added the spinach and a little rice vinegar for a kick.  Reserve some of the pasta water, and when the pasta is cooked, add it to the skillet and mix well.  Drizzle with some of the pasta water if the pasta seems a bit dry and serve the catfish over the pasta with a little sprinkle of the remaining rosemary and a wedge of lemon.  You could also use Dover sole, tilapia or cod. Click here for the recipe….
