Sauteed Catfish with Ginger Peach Sauce



Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


Ginger peach sauce
1 tablespoon butter
½ teaspoon ginger
16 ounces peaches
sliced, drained
1 cup fruit spred
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon thyme
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 ½ pounds catfish
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon butter
½ cup pecans


You may use 1½ cup peeled sliced fresh peaches instead of the canned peaches.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; add ginger and stir 1 minute.

If using fresh peaches, add and cook, stirring occasionally, until peaches are fork tender, about 2 minutes.

Add canned peaches, if using, and preserves; stir until jam melts.

Stir in ketchup, vinegar and hot pepper sauce.

Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor and whirl until peaches are coarsely chopped.

(Sauce can be cooled and refrigerated up to 2 weeks)

To serve, warm sauce, stirring, in a sauce pan over medium heat.

Makes about 2 cups.

In a medium size bowl or pie plate, combine flour, thyme, salt and pepper.

Rinse fish and pat dry.

Dredge fish in flour mixture; shake off excess and lay fillets in a single layer on a plate.

In a 10 to 12 inch frying pan over medium heat, heat oil and butter; add pecans and stir until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

Transfer nuts to paper towels to drain.

Add fish to pan, without overlapping (you may need to cook in 2 batches) Cook until fish is crisp and golden on bottom, about 4 minutes; turn fillets over and cook until fish is opaque and tender in center of thickest area, another 4 minutes.

Transfer fish briefly to paper towels to drain then arrange on plates.

Spoon about 3 Tablespoons warm Ginger Peach Sauce over each serving; sprinkle with pecans.

Makes 4 servings.

Ginger Peach Sauce is a nice counterpoint to the savory crispness of the fish.

Keep some around to try with fried catfish, fried oysters or grilled shrimp.
