4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1/2 cup rice)

The mild flavor and buttery texture of the catfish go well with the spicy heat of the chipotle salsa. The fillets are delicate, but a good sear on the underside keeps them from falling apart when turned over in the skillet.

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 14 minutes

How to Make It

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan and fillets with cooking spray. Sprinkle fillets evenly with salt and pepper. Add 2 fillets to pan, flat sides up; cook 4 minutes on 1 side or until browned. Turn fillets over; spoon 1 tablespoon salsa over each fillet. Cook 3 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 fillets. Serve with lime wedges and Cilantro-Chipotle Rice.

I'm not a big fan of fish, but this was a really good recipe. So simple that my husband prepared it! I will definitely make this again.
