This was quite good. I say quite because I used wild catfish and it was incredibly fishy next time I will soak it in salt water and milk like (I later found out) you're supposed to. I made a few changes to the recipe based on what I had at hand. Used vegetable broth a can of stewed tomatoes Cajun seasoning instead of red pepper flakes and dried chervil instead of fresh parsley. I also omitted the rice because my boyfriend wanted potato casserole instead. All in all the sauce was quite tasty but was ruined by the fish. I think if I had used store bought catfish or soaked mine it would have been wonderful. Mine was also quite runny but probably because I omitted the rice.
This recipe was pretty good. I soaked my home caught catfish in half milk half water like the previous rater suggested... it did take alot of the fishy flavor out. I wasnt sure how long to soak it.. i kind of forgot about it in the refridgerator so it ended up soaking for 24 hours. I used 2 cans of stewed tomatoes drained instead of chopped tomatoes.. i also added more onion and bell pepper... the recipe was kind of runny so next time i might add more rice and instead of 2 cups of beef broth just add 2 cubes of beef bullion thanks for the recipe and i will probably make again.
The ingredient list for this recipe is very similar to a crawfish recipe in the Frugal Gourmet's American collection and it makes for a good comfort food that even my wife who doesn't really care for most fish really liked. Yat's restaurant in Indianapolis specializes in etouffee and other Creole dishes. This could have come right out of one of their kettles. Because I substituted canned tomato juice and all I thought it needed a little sugar and some cumin to mellow it out a bit. Recommend putting Tabasco green sauce on the table for those wanting to kick it up.
So easy! I've made twice with both Catfish and the second time with Shrimp/pre-cooked Sausage and it held up to both. My only substitions were to use canned diced tomatoes instead and for extra fiber I added a can of red beans to the rice.
My husband and I really enjoyed this tonight. I made some slight changes such as using stewed tomatoes. I did not drain them so I ended up adding a cup of water and a beef bouillon cube while simmering. I made my own roux with bacon grease which gave a good smoky slow cooked flavor. Used brown rice rather than white. Will definitely make this again. I did add about 3/4 t of the pepper flakes and topped with chipotle tabasco sauce.
I am a native Cajun and I loved this. My husband however was not a huge fan. I think that is because this does not taste like what you typically find in a half-par Cajun restaurant - it tastes authentic! I soaked the wild catfish in milk and salt-water....AWESOME IDEA! We used chicken broth instead of beef (because we didn't have it) and added some Tony's Roux mix. We also used canned tomatoe soup (with onion salt olive oil basil) and a red pepper instead of a green bell pepper. All in all I liked it but I will probably try to make this next time with some Cream of Mushroom soup and fresh tomatoes (as I read in another recipe for shrimp etoufee).
We tried this with tilapia instead of catfish and with some shrimp added at the last few minutes of cooking time. I also soaked the tilapia in salt water and milk to reduce the fishy taste. It was pretty GOOD to us! Thanks for the recipe
