 Ingredients List

  • 4 Catfish fillets
  • 3 tb Lemon juice
  • 3 tb Soy sauce
  • 3 tb Vegetable oil
  • 1 c Thinly sliced bell pepper;
  • -preferably red
  • 1 c Sliced celery
  • 1 c Snow peas
  • 1 c Sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tb Cornstarch
  • 3/4 c Water

Cut fillets into bite-size pieces.

Combine lemon juice and soy sauce in medium bowl. Add catfish. Let
marinate for 20 minutes.

Combine cornstarch, water and pepper in a large measuring cup.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high
heat until hot enough to form bubbles around a wooded toothpick, 1-2
minutes. Add red pepper, celery, snow peas and mushrooms. Stir-fry for 2
minutes. Remove vegetables to plate.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to wok. Drain fish, pouring marinade into
cornstarch mixture. When oil is hot (1-2 minutes), add fish and stir-fry
for 2 minutes, or until fish is opaque and flakes easily.

Quickly return vegetables to wok. Stir cornstarch mixture till smooth and
pour into wok. Cook and stir until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
Serve over hot rice. Yields 4 servings.
