Cilantro Catfish


It’s time to cook the frozen catfish filet in my freezer.  I looked through my cookbooks and found there’s only 2-3 recipes of catfish dishes.   Catfish must have a strong taste as the recipes call for either a salsa sauce or a cajun seasoning, even with some buttermilk coated-deepfrying.  I always like to cook fish with simple marinade and easy method, so I based tonight’s recipe from a Costco recipe that uses orange juice, vegetable oil, soy, lemon juice, and garlic clove.  I think changing vegetable oil to sesame oil, adding ginger, wine, and ground white pepper, and lots of cilantro will be a refreshing way to cover up the catfish taste.

This is the only recipe I have tried on searing big jumbo scallops.  I invited my friend whom I forgot she doesn’t like / eat scallops while I first tried this course.   She avoided the dish throughout the whole dinner until the very end when the last piece of scallop was cold.  She finally picked up the scallop, and to my surprise, she liked it!

So I know the recipe is a keeper.  It’s adapted from epicurious.  I love how the reviewers enhanced the Asian flavor by adding ginger, chilli, and even alcohol like Grand Marnier.

Sangria


How can a spanish dinner of tapa dishes be complete without a glass of Sangria?

Alcohol contents have to be reduced as I have too many girlfriends who cannot tolerate alcohol very well.  I like Sangria to be with white wine as it’s more refreshing.
