Baked Fish With Barbecue Sauce

"Found this recipe in an old 1985 Southern Living magazine. Although I've never tried the recipe, it reminded me of a dish my Louisiana cousins used to make when we visited in the summertime as kids."

    My daughter douses any and all fish I make in barbecue sauce which makes me cringe, but then I spotted this recipe and thought what the heck. I was skeptical of barbecue sauce on fish but I have to say it was pretty good. The only way I would've been able to use perch, as the recipe calls for, would be if I went out and caught it at the lake myself, so I substituted catfish. It worked just fine.


<p>I am a weekend chef, and am always trying out new recipes with my daughter, Amanda. We love collecting and sharing recipes with our family and friends, but find we just don't have as much time to devote to it as we used to. We have found that sharing online is an easy way for us to post even the most sought after family recipes, giving easy access for all the aunts and cousins to collect and share. <br /> <br />I was born and raised in Dallas, and have never been out of the state for more than a few weeks at a time. <br /> <br />I love gardening,but since moving to a town home, I don't have a large backyard anymore. So, we make do with an herb garden and a few planters of flowers and ivy each spring. This year, we are going to try our hand at growing a couple tomato and bell pepper plants on our patio. <br /> <br />My daughter and I share a lot of the same interests in music, books, and crafting. We always have at least 5 projects going, and lots of ideas for new ones to follow at any given time. We donate a day of our time at least 4 times a year to the soup kitchens in Dallas and Fort Worth, and are big supporters of the local SPCA. <br /> <br />We have 5 cats: two toms: Tigger, an American ginger tabby,&amp; Shadow, a Russian Siamese; recent additions are Sabastian &amp; Liam:two adorable little kittens-both coal black with their tails dipped in white paint! We are not sure, but their mother looked Abyssinian. Their father was feral, but most likely a Bombay breed.We just took in our first female, Kahlua. She was found in North Carolina along with 25 other cats &amp; kittens on an abandonded farm, and a friend brought her down for us to foster.&nbsp; <br /> <br />We are experimenting with making gourmet cat and dog treats, and as soon as we perfect the recipes (with at least a 4 meow! or woof! rating) we will post them online for everyone. Doing this kind of thing makes a great fundraiser at work, as well as great gifts at holidays!</p>
