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.

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.

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'!
