Cat Fish Recipe - Catfish Stew

This cat fish recipe is a delightful combination of cat fish, bacon and vegetables - it makes a complete meal in a pot.

If you're camping - you could make this your 'catch of the day' meal if you don't feel like barbecueing. It's a one pot cooking ring recipe which you could do in two stages - use the trimmings to make your stock and then whilst that's cooking, you can prepare your vegetables.

OR you could just use water with or without a stock cube - it's your choice.

You could serve this with some crusty bread to mop up the sauce or add some chopped carrots, green beans or similar to the pot to cook at the same time.

So here goes...

Cook's Notes

This such a versatile recipe - you can make it with any type of fish you like.

Try cod, haddock, coley or basa cut into generous sized chunks. Think about a combination or add some smoked fish for a change. Chuck a few shrimp in for the last couple of minutes to heat through. 

Mop up those delicious juices with some crusty bread for a really easy meal.
