Catfish with Spicy Spinach and Peppers

Even though I was sans kitchen plumbing (currently on day 17!), I decided I had no choice but to cook.  A food lover can only eat take out for so long!  I did have to use the kitchen downstairs to rinse the ingredients, but other than that the magic happened in my kitchen.

Two pieces of catfish
1 bunch fresh spinach
½ red pepper julienned
½ green pepper, julienned
½ small onion
1 1/2 tbs chipotle adobo sauce
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbs all purpose flour
2 tbs vegetable oil

Salt and pepper the catfish then coat lightly with flour.  Heat 1 tbs of oil on medium heat then add the catfish.  Cook for 4 minutes then turn over and cook for another four minutes.

Put the fish to the side and add the remaining oil into the pan. Once it heats up, add the onions and peppers for about 3 minutes.  

Next add the chipotle adobo sauce and the spinach.  Cook while stirring until the spinach is wilted. Serve with the catfish.

The vegetables tasted incredible.  That chipotle-adobo sauce added a great kick! Yup, I killed it! Even sans kitchen plumbing, I beasted in the kitchen.  If I had plumbing I probably would have made rice or some other carb.  In the end, I decided cookies were the perfect side dish dessert.

Hungry yet?
