We eat fish (usually fried or grilled) once a week. I don't remember where I found this recipe...I think maybe Southern living, but I adjusted it just a bit. We all liked it for a change of pace from the usual.
- 4 -6 catfish fillets
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄4 cup barbecue sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon jamaican jerk spice
- 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1⁄8 teaspoon dried tarragon
- some cracked black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Rinse fillets and arrange in a lightly-greased 9 x 13-inch pan.
- Melt margarine in a saucepan.
- Add all of the remaining ingredients to the melted margarine.
- Mix well and stir occasionally for 5-10 minutes.
- Pour mixture over fish fillets.
- Bake 15-18 minutes until fish flakes easily.
I usually make fish with some sort of citrus sauce, but was looking to try something different. I tried this recipe with tilapia instead of catfish, and loved it! I had most of the ingredients on hand (used Recipe #29317 for the Jamaican Jerk Spice), and it was very quick to whip up. I will definitely be using it again, and can't wait to try it on the grill instead of in the oven. Thanks Freda2 Brown!
