salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside. FOR COOKING: Preheat oven
to 375 degrees F. Place catfish fillets in an ovenproof casserole dish
large enough to hold the four fillets. Sprinkle the shrimp evenly over the
top of the fillets. Spoon the Creole sauce generously until fish and shrimp
are well covered. Place covered baking dish in oven and cook approximately
thirty minutes or until fish is done. Heat rice under hot tap water and
place an equal amount in the center of each serving plate. Serve catfish
Creole on top of white rice and garnish with chopped parsley. This dish may
also be served over pasta.
