Most of us are used to seeing catfish fried. Catfish piccata with collard greens and capers is a delicious way to think outside the box with this versatile fish.

Combine egg and milk in a small shallow bowl. In another bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Place the panko breadcrumbs in a third shallow bowl.
Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Dip catfish fillet in flour mixture, then egg wash, then panko. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, turn over, and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining fillets.
Add garlic to hot pan, and sauté for 30 seconds. Add white wine and simmer for 3 minutes. Add lemon juice, zest, and capers; simmer until reduced to 1/4 cup. Remove from heat; whisk in cold butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with parsley. Spoon over fillets.
