This dish is so delicious and simple. You fry the catfish fillets while adding lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. A lovely sauce is also made with tasso, peppers, onions, Italian seasoning and crawfish tails. This sauce is then poured over the fried catfish fillets and garnished with parsley and green onions.
