On a whim I bought catfish at Whole Foods yesterday evening.
Well, not exactly a whim. I’d had catfish for the first time in my life last year, and, to my surprise, it tasted pretty much like any other kind of smaller white fish. A tastier kind of tilapia, so to speak.
So I wasn’t afraid to buy it anymore.
But when I got home, the bulk of the recipes in Epicurious involved breading it and frying it.
I like frying as much as the next person, but breading in tabu on my current diet, something between a low-carb and a slow-carb diet, somewhere to the left of South Beach. So breading was out.
I found this recipe, however, and it spoke to me. I like olives. I had parsley (and like it well enough). and I’m always intrigued to use new kitchen junk, so the idea of putting a circle of parchment paper on top of the cooking fish-and-olives tickled me.
(Debbie’s away until tonight, so I had only myself to please here.)
There’s how the picture in Epicurious looks. I didn’t get my own home photos because the phone was upstairs and I was downstairs (I know, it’s a First World problem, but then I’m a First World guy).
Really tasty. I had it with a big old salad and was quite pleased with myself.
