    I've gotten a few requests for my catfish creole recipe so I've decided to post it for anyone who would like to try it. Its very easy to make and it melts in your mouth...I've even had people who do not like catfish tell me they love it. Hope you enjoy ! Tracey

    Catfish Creole
    From the Kitchen of MsKittyFish

    1/4 cup each of chopped sweet onion, green pepper and celery
    2 cloves of garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons canola oil
    3/4 cup chicken broth
    1 small can tomato paste
    1 can rotel tomatoes with chiles
    1 can diced tomatoes
    ½ teaspoon each of salt, basil, oregano, and thyme
    1/8 teaspoon each of white , black, and cayenne pepper, and paprika
    1 pound catfish fillets
    Hot steamed Rice (Uncle Bens Converted is THE best!)

    In a skillet, saute the sweet onion, green pepper , celery and garlic in the oil until tender. Add the chicken broth, tomato paste and seasonings. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and then simmer for 5 minutes. Add the rotel tomatoes and the diced tomatoes. You can add or omit ingredients to adjust to your liking. I love using jalapenos instead of green peppers to heat it up a notch.

    In a deep dish baking pan ( I use pampered chef Indian stone but you can use your favorite casserole baking dish) , grease lightly and layer the catfish fillets along bottom of pan and pour the creole sauce over the top of them. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until fillets are very tender.

    Serve catfish fillets and sauce over a hot bed of white rice and enjoy!
    Makes about 4 servings...but ya might want to make extra because it’s just that good! Melts in your mouth! Enjoy....
