Cajun Catfish Supreme (Can Substitute Trout or Even Chicken)
I tagged this as part of 2 recipes by the same chef for a game I play on Zaar. It was absolutely delicious for such a minimal effort meal. I have 2 in my family that are not big fish lovers they will eat it but it would not be their first choice for dinner and both raved about just how good this was. I am making her second recipe today and if last night was anything to go by I an in for another treat today. This dish is really such a great combination of ingredients and you end up with a restaurant quality meal which is really easy to prepare.

1 1/2lbs Catfish fillets, cut into strips
2 Teaspoons cajun blackening seasoning
4 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Cup sliced fresh mushrooms (can substitute canned, drained)
8 Tablespoons butter, divided
1/2 Cup chopped fresh parsley
1 Cup sliced green onion
1lb Peeled shrimp
2 (10 3/4 ounce) Cans condensed cream of shrimp soup


1. Sprinkle catfish with blackened seasoning.

2. Spread catfish with mayonnaise.

3. Place in shallow dish; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

4. In a large skillet, heat 4 tablespoons butter until begins to sizzle.

5. Sear fish until golden, turning once.

6. Transfer to 9×13 baking pan in a single layer.

7. In a different skillet, heat 4 tablespoons butter, cook and stir mushrooms until golden.

8. Stir in parsley, green onions and shrimp.

9. Reduce heat to low and cook until shrimp are just pink through and through.

10. Stir in soup and blend well; turn off heat.

11. Ladle over fish (or chicken) in baking dish.

12. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake 30 minutes. (Reminder if fillets are thin, reduce cooking time).

I cooked mine all on the stove top and just topped the fish with sauce, it would probably be better to do chicken in the oven to be sure that it is cooked all the way through.

I served ours over wild rice with chopped red pepper and snow peas.

Whole Trout (Or Fillets) Stuffed W/Bacon & Eggplant Dressing
I made this recipe with salmon as I have bought trout a few times from my local store and it is always so full of bones even after filleting that I don’t really enjoy all the effort of picking the bones out. It worked very well with the salmon and we all loved the topping. I chose to make it as a topping for fillets rather than to stuff a whole fish and I loved the way it turned out. I served ours over asparagus sun-dried tomato and mushrooms drizzled with hollandaise and it was truly delicious meal. If you want to view the recipe please click here.
