4 servings

1 ½ cups orange juice
2T lime juice
1/3 cup white wine
2T minced shallot
¼ cup butter
1 bay leaf
4 6oz.halibut fillets
Orange peel strips, chives for garnish

Boil orange juice and lime juice til reduced to 1/3 cup; boil wine and shallots in another pan til wine is reduced to 2T, about 3 minutes. Add reduced oj mixture to wine mixture. Reduce heat to low; add butter 1 piece at a time, whisking til just melted. Remove from heat; season with salt/pepper.
Bring large skillet of salted water to simmer; add bay leaf and fish; cover and simmer til fish is just opaque in center, turning once; about 5 minutes. Transfer fish to plates; spoon sauce over, and garnish with orange peel and chive.

Call me weird, but I could never see eating catfish. ANYTHING nasty in the water, it's gonna be concentrated in them.

I think most catfish sold in the stores now is 'farmed'; so they get a better diet! :D

Have you tried blackening either or them? I love blackened catfish.

I use catfish filets to make fish & chips if I can't get good fresh cod here.. which leads me to a question.

The beer batter recipe/s I have just says to mix the beer with the flour and/or cornmeal mix... maybe an egg, garlic powder/salt, etc.. but it doesn't say to WAIT after I mix the batter.

I was watching a show on TV (Paula something with phony exaggerated southern accent) and she said to wait THREE HOURS to allow the yeast in the beer to interact with the flour, etc... Then my next door neighbor told me that the yeast is killed in the process of making the beer and waiting didn't add anything... ???? And that I had to add baking powder or whatever to get a more "fluffy" coating...

I guess I could experiment but does anyone here make/use a beer batter and do you let it sit for a couple hours?

lutzz, I would never let beer in any form sit around for 3 hours for any reason.
