1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
6 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Generous dash of Tabasco sauce (optional)
6 to 8 catfish fillets
Juice of 1 lemon
Mix softened butter, cheese, mayonnaise, green onions, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco, stirring well.
Poach catfish fillets, two or three at a time, in a skillet of lightly simmering water that lemon juice has been added to, for 4 or 5 minutes. Remove fillets from water and place on a plate to drain.
Place fillets in individual au gratin dishes or on a baking pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Spread 2 tablespoons of cheese mixture over each fillet. Broil for 2 or 3 minutes or until the cheese mixture browns and fish flakes easily.
