Savory Saturday - Simply Catfish and Beans

When I tell my children about the nutritional merits of any food they would always give me this expression of disgust, never mind that they like the food.  

Here's a recipe that's so simple that anybody can make it in just a few minutes.  This recipe came about as a result of my effort to add more fiber and fish in our meals.  We buy catfish fillet from Costco and freeze whatever we can't use immediately.  Before freezing, I layer the fillets with wax paper for easier separation later on.
Simply Catfish and Beans

3 Catfish fillet
1 can (12 oz) kidney beans
1 can (12 oz) diced tomatoes
1 can (12 oz) sweet corn (optional)
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
2 tbsp cooking oil
Salt and pepper

Heat oil in frying pan and cook catfish one minute per side.  Pour tomatoes, beans, and corn over fish.   Bring the mixture to boil.  Cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until fish is fork-tender.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle cilantro on top.  Serve over rice and a hot sauce if desired.  Enjoy!
