My boyfriend wanted some catfish, and this recipe seemed simple enough, while using yummy ingredients. What a success- he raved about the appearance and taste for hours! To top it all off, this recipe seems much healthier than the other catfish recipes out there! **I've been cooking this for 5 years now- I'm now married to said boyfriend, and I make the recipe from heart now- but I wanted to suggest a few changes- 1. I brush some of the sundried tomato oil on the fish, rather than just in the the pan. 2. I sprinkle a seasoning salt rather than salt and pepper. 3. I don't cover the catfish anymore- I like to get them a little brown by leaving it uncovered on high heat 1-2 minutes. 4. I cover the catfish with the spinach-tomato mixture, like the pictures show.
