Creole Catfish Stew
2 tablespoons cooking oil
In a large pot, heat oil over moderate heat. Add the onion, celery, and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the thyme, oregano, mustard, Tabasco sauce, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. add the wine and cook until almost evaporated, about 4 minutes. You can increase the spiciness at the end by increasing the Tabasco sauce or adding a bit of cayenne pepper, as written it should give you a moderate heat level.
Add the tomatoes and broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes. Add the lima beans and simmer 3 minutes. Stir in the corn and simmer 4 minutes more. Add the catfish and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, bring back to a simmer, and cook until just done, about 2 minutes. Please don't over cook your fish. Serve topped with chopped parsley or cilantro.
This is a fast meal that serves 4. This recipe was adapted from Food & Wine Magazine, and it is by far the best recipe I have found.
