  1. YUM! This was a great simple way to make this! I used catfish nuggets and instead of garlic used blacking seasoning, cause blackened catfish is tasty, but fills my house with smoke when i make it!
  2. Wow Toolbelt Diva, this was amazing! I had four half-pound catfish fillets, so I ended up multiplying all the ingredients by 1.5 so that I could make sure I had enough sauce. Based on the first review, I marinaded the fillets for about an hour in the sauce and then broiled them. I had to broil them for 15-20 minutes, but my oven is really slow (and my fillets were huge!). These went over so well - I cooked them for my parents and they loved them! They held the flavor so well and the liquid smoke really makes this sauce. Awesome recipe!
  3. I have to start by saying I do not like bottled smoke and so I wondered why I chose this recipe - well Toolbelt Diva you have made a convert out of me. - This fish was excellent. Definately smokey and so moist. When I mixed the basting sauce I even thought 2 tsp of liquid smoke? However I carried through measuring the exact amounts of the ingredients -Very very pleasant flavor not overbearing at all. The first bite was such a pleasant surprise Yhis basting sauce would be excellent on chicken too Definately a do again recipe- Toolie rules- Thanks for posting
  4. this was good, but not great. i think the next time i make this recipe i will marinate the fish for about 1/2 hour, instead of just basting it. the fish was moist and easy to make, but the taste of the marinade was very faint. i used tilapia instead of catfish, DH does not like catfish. I will make this again and re-review it.

<p>Gone, but not Forgotten. Where is she? someone asked. Not far was the loud response. Certainly not hiding in a large roasting pan, although I do have one about the size of a hog. <br /> <br />If I don't do this now, I never will, and if I never will, who will tell me if I am any good at the literature game? I am taking some time off to concentrate on writing a book...and you people have been distracting me. Oh yeah, sez you... What kinda book? Well, one with about 200 pages, give or take a dozen or so... maybe 300 who knows? Everyone knows Toolie has a lot to say at the best of times. <br /> <br />A DIY book??? Naaahhh, I'll leave that to the real mechanics at Canadian Tire and Home Depot. <br /> <br />A Recipe Book? Yeah, Right!!!! Like I would compete with this site or any other... Not in this lifetime... I have a tough enough time competing with some of you chefs, so I just don't, and won't. <br /> <br />Oh sure, I will cook some of your recipes, for special occasions. Pictures? Who knows? but don't hold your breath. Posting in the forums? Perhaps, but not on a regular basis... Posting recipes??? from time to time.... <br /> <br />Why hang around, you say? Because I wanna keep my terrific handle. There is only one TOOLBELT DIVA folks...
