This is an absolutely amazing recipe! I followed the it exactly and don't really think there's any way to improve it. You can still taste the catfish very well but it mellows the flavor out a little so my family loved.it. Thanks!

Super easy to make! At first glance it seems a little complicated, but in reality it's simple. I used 2 bell peppers, one green and one yellow, so the dish came out looking beautiful with those colors and the red of the tomatoes. I will definitely make this again for my fiance.

This recipe is easy to follow and the ending result tastes great. We did not have basil or oregeno, so we substituted with cajun spices. This is one to try again, but next time we will use a little more spice to bring out the flavor.

As PepperA said, this recipe is a good alternative to fried catfish. We caught a lot of fish in the bay and had already fried some, so I was looking for something different. I was out of bell pepper and substituted green chiles. I also used fresh tomatoes from the farmer's market. Even with the chiles and added salt, I found the dish a bit bland, as did my husband. I will cook it again next time I go bay fishing and try to jazz it up a little (maybe some cajun seasoning?).

With only one catfish fillet and 2 people to feed, I chose this recipe thinking the rice would be filling and I had all the ingredients on hand. Discovering partway through that there was no chicken stock in the freezer or pantry, I was forced to substitute water (cutting the amount down to about 1/2 cup, hoping it wouldn't taste 'watery'). I added salt, which it definitely needed without the stock, and increased the other seasonings a little to personal taste. To my surprise, it was just a delicious meal! (And think how much better those "Nutrition Facts" must look if you take out the stock!) We added hot sauce at the table, so I'll definitely try it with Rotel next time. On taste alone, I would rate this recipe a strong 4 stars. Taking into account that it's so very quick, easy, inexpensive, healthy and adaptable, I decided it deserved the 5th. (Btw, he ate 2/3rds, I ate the rest -- and this dish 'stretched' that 1 lonely catfish enough that we both felt very well-fed.) Won't be dropping this one back into the recipe 'pool', 'cause it's a keeper. :) Thanks, PepperA!
