Catfish & Yellow Rice

Turns out the day wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be.  I made it to physical therapy and didn't even have to go back to the office.  I even had time to pick up some catfish!

Although I still have some leftovers, I decided I needed something different tonight.  I went to the fish market and bought about 1/2 pound of catfish.  It wasn't until I got home that I decided just what I'd do to it.

Similar to the salmon I made a while back, I decided to give this catfish a good rub down.

1 piece catfish (approx. 1/2 lb)
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons chili powder
3 tablespoons salt
3 tablespoons black pepper
3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder

The measurements are approximate.  Truth is when I cook, I tend to eyeball most of the ingredients.  Lay out the fish on a piece of wax paper.  Add 1/2 of each dry ingredient to one side of the fish.  Next add 1 teaspoon of oil then rub into the fish.  No need to get too aggressive, but you want to make sure the fish is well coated.  Flip it over and do the same on the other side.  Next heat frying pan to medium heat and place the fish in there.

It only needs to cook for 3 - 5 minutes on each side.  Don't keep it for any longer if not you'll over cook it.

Before the fish was ready, I put some yellow rice on the stove and added some peas and carrots.  Of course I also made some plantain.  So there you have it, dinner on a day I thought would be stressful.  If you try it out, let me know how it is!

Hungry yet?
