So. With that out of the way. Today I decided to make Catfish Stew for lunch. When Andrew came downstairs and decided to assist, I was all, "Great! You can clean up the mess you made in The Kitchen!"
And he was all, "You mean the mess I made MAKING YOU BREAKFAST?"
Anyway. Back to the Catfish Stew.
First, you cut up the fish.
Or, if you've cut off your index finger twice, once while butchering a cantaloupe and once in a second year studio class in architecture school, you let someone else cut up the fish.
I like to buy the catfish that's already cajun seasoned. It's easy and makes for a tangier, spicier stew.
Next, fry the bacon over medium heat for two minutes or so.
Add tomatoes, water, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and thyme.
Add the fish. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook about twenty five minutes.
1 pound cajun seasoned catfish fillets
4 slices of bacon, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup of water
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon thyme
