Our family likes to cook something pretty easy during the weekend , occasionally , we like to make something complicated , just because everyone can pitch in and help . But not today , we chose to cook something simple , easy and quick . So we landed our choice to broiled catfish . Seafood is so cheap over here , and it’s kinda nice to be able to eat more seafood !!
This broiled catfish doesn’t take long to prepare , doesn’t take long to cook either . I partly broiled the catfish then baked it . It was pretty yummy , my 7 years old demands me to cook this more often ! LOL I served this with steamed potatoes , and collard greens .
4 – 6 oz. catfish
4 garlic cloves , minced
4 tbsp. of olive oil , plus few more for later on
bread crumbs , from 2 slices of bread
1 fresh lemon
essence of emeril
1. Line the cookie sheet with aluminium foil , rub the fish with essence of emeril and sprinkle with salt and pepper .
2. In a small bowl , mix the olive oil , with thyme , and garlic . Then dab the fish with the garlic oil mixture , make sure you dab it evenly all over the fish .
3. Sprinkle with some fresh lemon juice .
4. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs , ( 2 slices of bread in food processor , pulse until it’s crumbly ) . Then sprinkle with little olive oil .
5. Broil for 5 minutes , if it get burn quick , turn off the broiler , and turn the oven to 350 F , bake for 15 minutes .
I love fish ! They’re yummy and they’re loaded with nutrition and healthy for you . Originally , i was going to make easy fish , wrapped in foil with vegetables , but i changed my mind . Fish is actually not my territory , my husband does a better job than me in making fish . But the wrapped with foil fish turned out really good . This time , i had Salmon , and the other night went to Trader’s Joe and got myself some prosciutto . I saw one time on a cooking show , wrapping the fish with prosciutto .. so i thought this should be good . Turned out , it’s super easy and quick meal for dinner !
For the roasted vegetables :
2 large potatoes
Dice all these vegetables ( same size ) , then place them on a cookie sheet , and sprinkle with olive oil , and salt and pepper . Bake at 400 F for 15 minutes , then turn them , and bake 15 minutes more . Once it’s done , add about 4-5 cloves of minced garlic , sprinkle all over the vegetables , bake for 10 more minutes . Remove and set aside .
For the fish :
About 1.5-2 lbs of salmon fillet , halibut , cod or seabass
About 8-10 slices of very thin prosciutto
salt and pepper
Cut the fillet into 8-10 pieces , and then rub with olive oil , and sprinkle with salt and pepper . Wrap each fillet with the prosciutto , and place seam side down on a foil lined baking sheet . Bake at 400 F for about 10 minutes , the bigger the pieces , the longer you need to bake them , and the smaller , the faster .
For the Garlic Butter :
1 stick of butter
4-5 cloves of garlic , minced
In a skillet , on low heat , melt the butter and the garlic for about 5 minutes until the butter turns brown .
To serve , sprinkle a little bit of the garlic butter on top of the prosciutto wrapped salmon , and add the vegetables all over . Sprinkle with lemon wedge .
