½ cup All purpose flour; (about)

For Sauce: Combine wine, fresh lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and garlic in small nonaluminum saucepan. Boil until liquid is reduced to ½ cup, about 8 minutes. Add cream.

Using metal spatula, transfer fish, nut side up, to rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining fish and ½ tablespoon oil. Bake until opaque in center, about 10 minutes.

Transfer catfish fillets to plates. Serve catfish with sauce.
