Another catfish delight courtesy of Chef Lucia Watson, this recipe is perfect thanks to the cat clan's firm, tasty flesh. It also works with burbot, walleyes, bass, pike and perch.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound catfish fillets, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 scallions, coarsely chopped
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, stemmed & chopped
