I just finished a vacation. One of the best dinners I ate was at Jake’s Restaurant on the West Bank. I had the stuffed catfish. Here is a recipe of that delicious dish.
4 Catfish, cleaned and skinned
1 lb Crabmeat
1 pt Oysters
½ lb Salad Shrimp
1 bag Italian Breadcrumbs (seasoned)
1 bunch Springing Onions (if spring onions are not available, use chopped Red Onions)
1 clove Garlic
1 cup White Wine
First, you need to steam and chop the oysters. Then, mix the oysters, crabmeat, and the shrimp with a combination of chopped onion, breadcrumb, juice from lemon, and garlic in bowl. This mixture is then stuffed into the cavity of the catfish. Sprinkle a pinch of zest from the lemons onto the prepared fish. Next, add ¼ cup white wine to the stuffed fish, and wrap it in aluminum foil. Once the fish is wrapped, you can grill it on a low heat or even bake it at around 325°F. This should be done for around half an hour. In order to check when the catfish is cooked, you need to use a fork to poke it and find out whether the meat is soft enough. With the quantity of ingredients used in this recipe, you should be able to serve around 4 people. It takes around 30 minutes to prepare this dish and around 30 minutes or more to cook it properly.
