Rio Grande Catfish

Rio Grande Catfish


2 Jalapeno peppers ; stemmed a
1/2 c Lime juice ; freshly squeeze
3 Serrano peppers ; semmed and 1/2 md Onion ; diced
1/2 tb Cumin powder
2 tb Cilantro ; minced
2 Cl Garlic ; pressed
4 8 oz catfish fillets ; skinl
1 c Vegetable oil
1 c Tomatoes ; peel, dice, chill


In this part of the country, the table fish of choice is the catfish--at least it's the most common. You can usually order this fish prepared any wa that you like it, as long as it's fried. Now, I've no complaints with a well-fried catfish, but there had to be another way.

So a couple of nights ago, a few friends were over and we tried out this idea. Our "impartial" panel of judges decided that this was a definite keeper, and we are pleased to pass it on to you, literally, hot off the grill

Combine the first eight ingredients in a blender and coarsely blend. Place the filets in a non-reactive container large enough to hold them in a singl layer. Pour the marinade over the filets and cover. Turn the filets once after thirty minutes. After a total marinating time of no more than one hour (any longer and they'll start to fall apart), grill them quickly over very hot mesquite coals, about 2-4 minutes per side, basting with the marinade. Place each filet on a plate, and top with 1/4 cup of chilled chopped tomato.

Looks like an interesting recipe. I sometimes have a problem finding Serrano peppers .... any close substitution you could suggest?

If I can't find serrano, then I'll substitute fresh jalapeno. Serrano chilis are supposedly hotter but on a one a one to one ratio, I seriously doubt most people could tell the difference.
