Wine-Marinated Spicy Grilled Catfish




The thrill of the grill last night was catfish for us, no matter that it was really chilly out there, and like a late September day!



Most of the time, I cover the fish with a spicy rub, but recently I saw this recipe on a card at the grocery store, and had to give it a go.

Wine in addition to lime juice, chopped parsley, dry mustard, chili powder and seasonings are stirred together for this marvelous marinade.  



The recipe called for Chardonnay, I had Pinot Grigio on hand, and used it.  The catfish marinated for a short time and was cooked over a hot grill for a really tasty catfish dinner.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
2 tablespoons lime juice
½ cup Pinot Grigio
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 pound catfish fillets
Lemon slices, optional

Method:

Combine all ingredients for the marinade, in a medium bowl, except catfish and lemon slices.
Add catfish to bowl and let marinate in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Drain fillets, reserving marinade.
Place fish on hot grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning once, and basting occasionally reserved marinade.
Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

Serve

ENJOY!

  2. Pam, That is a fine looking meal! Catfish and Tilapia are my favorites since they do such a good job of picking up the flavors of the marinade or spices...without that fishy taste. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. "What?? Catfish marinated in wine"?? That's what my Aunt Ruth would say. The same aunt that said corn wasn't worth eating unless you set the pot to boil before picking the ears. As for us, it sounds delicious!!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  14. About 10 years ago, we had a local restaurant that specialized in catfish with a peppery sauce that we loved. We were so sad when it closed. This marinade sounds like it could be a really good substitute! Everything tastes better with wine :)

  15. Hi Pam, we eat a lot of fish in the summer and this marinade sounds perfect. Do you think the marinade would be good with tuna?

    1. Hi Cheri! Yes, I think it would be good with tuna. It's a light taste, maybe a little spicy and should be fine with it. Hope you try it and like it! Have a great week!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.
