This recipe is an example of the simple is better philosophy. My husband and I enjoyed this one very much. We both thought the pan drippings drizzled over the fish made this so flavorful. It looked nice when plated. A very healthy, satisfying dinner. Thanks Nurse Di.

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.

I used salmon instead of catfish as my dh isn't really a white fish kinda guy. I also added a handful of pinenuts for a little crunch. We liked this very much! Thanks, ratherbeswimmin'!

I don't think I like sun-dried tomatoes with catfish... but this was okay.

We really enjoyed this recipe. For dietary reasons I did omit the oil and used chicken stock to saute the garlic and catfish. Very simple, clean and fresh flavors and it couldn't be easier to throw together. Thank you Ratherbeswimmin for sharing the recipe.

Very easy recipe, had to add a little more flavor for us. I added some capers and sprinkled with a little cajun seasonings. This would work well with Tilapia also.

Even though I'm a northerner, my dad was a fisherman & caught catfish quite often - but my mother just fried it! This is much healthier & oh so colourful. Aside from using Basa, which is in the catfish family, I made no changes to the recipe. Thanx Di!
