In my never ending quest for new recipes I came across the one below.
The catfish was good but if you don’t like catfish you can substitute any like fish (tilapia?).
I did not brush the fish with the mixture but instead mixed all ingredients together and used it like a relish and seasoned the fish with blackened seasoning.
I used an indoor grill and it worked perfectly!
It was very good and I could eat the ‘relish’ as a stand alone!! We will have it again next time trying a different fish!
6 – 4 ounces fresh or frozen catfish fillets, about 1/2 inch thick
1 teaspoon finely shredded lime peel
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons snipped fresh oregano
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 medium avocado, halved, seeded, peeled, and diced
1 medium tomato, chopped
Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
For relish, in a small bowl, combine lime peel, lime juice, cilantro, oregano, green onion, olive oil, salt, and cayenne pepper. In a medium bowl, combine beans, avocado, and tomato; stir in half of the cilantro mixture. Cover and chill until serving time.
Place fish on rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning and brushing once with remaining cilantro mixture halfway through grilling. Discard any remaining cilantro mixture. Serve fish with relish and lime wedges. Makes 6 servings.
