Carrie's Catfish Larue

Recipe by  

"Something new to do with catfish besides deep frying it! A yummy blend of tomatoes and italian seasonings make this a mild fish dish. Great if you don't care for that sometimes overpowering catfish taste. For a stronger fish flavor, try making the sauce separately and serving over grilled catfish!"

  1. Place 1 tablespoon of oil in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. Saute onion, green pepper, and carrot until golden brown; remove from the pan. Using the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, sear all of the fillets on both sides. Lay all of the fillets into the skillet, sprinkle with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Top with the sauteed vegetables, and pour on the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and white wine.
  2. Bring to a simmer, and cook gently until the sauce has thickened slightly, and fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.

I'm new to catfish but I really enjoyed this recipe. I did have to use frozen fish but because of the poaching, it came out flavorful and moist. I'm sure the wine would have been good, but I didn't have any. So, I used a splash of broth and that worked great. Am giving this recipe to 2 co-workers today since I've been raving about it all morning!

I will make this again, but I plan to try different seasonings as it seemed to be lacking a little in flavor.

Husband loved it, I didn't enjoy it at all. Just like the author of the recipe says, it's only for those who don't care for the catfish overpowering flavor/smell. It's a good idea for something different, but I will stick with fried catfish.

the folks that I cook for called this recipe "A KEEPER" This is the first time I cooked catfish in a way other than frying and I will definately use this again

This was really good. I used fat free olive oil cooking spray to sautee the veggies and sear the fish to reduce the fat content, and it worked just fine.I will definately make this again, only next time I will try addding some fresh minced garlic.

I was hesitant to try it, but I'm glad I did! So good I shared with my mom. Anyhow, minor changes due to what I did or didn't have on hand. Had to use onion flakes (I'm NEVER out of onions!!), omitted green pepper and used catfish nuggets because that's what I had. Came out very good. Would have preferred to serve over rice but served over spiral noodles. Thanks for sharing!

This was good but Husband said he would have preferred it with a different fish, maybe tilapia or cod. Thanks, Carrie!

Thank you for this recipe! It was very good and even my husband, who typically doesn't love fish, said it was really good. I had to improvise with a few ingredients, didn't have a can of diced tomatoes, but had a fresh one so diced it; didn't have tomato sauce, so used a little spaghetti sauce; didn't have white wine, so used cream sherry. It turned out very good. I'm happy to have another way to make catfish!
