    A couple nights ago I was watching a John Wayne movie, "True Grit". In the movie there was a mention of Catfish Stew. I thought that sounded good so I looked up a recipe. I am pretty picky when it comes to my food and I looked at several before I picked one.
    This evening we had what I call"John Wayne Catfish Stew". I made a couple pans of cornbread to go with it and we chowed down. Man, that was really some good stuff. If anyone wants the recipe I will be glad to post it.

    John Wayne Catfish Stew

    1 pound catfish fillets (I put in 1 1/2 pounds)
    3 slices bacon, chopped
    1 cup onion, chopped
    1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
    1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes
    2 cups peeled and diced potatoes
    1 cup water
    1/4 cup ketchup
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon thyme

    Wash the catfish fillets and cut them into 1-inch pieces.

    Fry the bacon for 2 to 3 minutes in a large, heavy saucepan until crispy. Breakup the bacon up and leave it in the pan and add the onion and bell pepper and cook until tender. Add the fish and remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 45 minutes. (I had to cook a little longer because the taters were still a little hard.)

    Correct the seasonings if necessary and serve hot with cornbread.
