Paprika, celery salt, and cayenne make a bright, slightly spicy rub for this mild fish.

This was really quick and simple to prepare, but very, very tasty indeed. I used tilapia instead of catfish as it's more readily available where I live, and its also a nice mild fish ideal for spicing up. In all other ways I followed the recipe, using mustard greens and crme frache as listed.The men in my household are neither fish fans nor fond of leafy greens, and it's a challenge to get my teen son to even try greens. Both guys really enjoyed this dish, and commented that the greens being eaten with the fish (I served the filets atop the greens as suggested) were what made the whole meal so tasty.All plates were wiped clean, and believe me, that almost never happens when I serve something like mustard greens. Don't skimp on any of the ingredients, and be sure to use every bit of the spices on the filets. You won't be disappointed.
This recipe was delicious! Not much of a catfish or green person but every bit was gone. I've made it several times since and the family loves it.
My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I agree that farm raised catfish can be tasteless. However, Whole Foods tends to have very good fish even farm raised.Instead of kale (my husband dislikes), I steamed some red swiss chard and then followed the recipe as printed. My husband ,who tends to be a picky vegetable eater, cleaned his plate.Not my favorite Ivy Manning recipe but definitely worth a look.
Ok, so I rarely do this but could not let this one pass. This recipe is terrible. What a way to waste a perfectly beautiful bunch of kale. And now I know why I haven't bought catfish in such a long time: it was tasteless even with the spices in this recipe. I definitely will follow my instinct the next time about buying ANY "farmed fish" which I believe is the only way to buy catfish nowadays (but I certainly may be wrong on this one). Even so, if you read this review, be warned. Now on to the "apple cider glazed chicken" in this section.
