    Hey Jude's Note:

    Sounds fussy but it's actually a quick and easy after work dinner for two people. I've only done this with the catfish but I imagine any other firm-fleshed fish would work as well. I found this in the Chicago Tribune 'Dinner Tonight' column.

      I took inspiration from this recipe-simply, my pasta and catfish were dressed w/ a splash of evoo, lime juice, and cilantro. The flavor was refreshing and vibrant. I grilled my catfish on cedar planks and topped w/ the sauce from Grilled Salmon and Smokey Tomato-chipotle Sauce. I also served grilled asparagus, Mexican Stuffed Tomatoes and Mexican Sunset Bread (Bread Machine). What a wonderful meal! Thank you so much for a great recipe inspiration!

      This was delicious and easy. Because we love cilantro and pecans, I doubled the amount of those. Also, I poured a shot of tequila over the catfish before broiling, which made it even more delicious.

      I did not have cilantro and lime on hand so I used parsley and lemon. It was delicious. Thank you for posting.
