    A quick and easy Catfish stew! For a fresher taste, I have adapted the recipe, but only slightly. I use catfish nuggets and Ro-Tel tomatoes. I use fresh celery, onion, garlic clove, a strip of lemon peel and fresh thyme, when available. I use hot pepper flakes, instead of hot pepper sauce, and no salt. Diners are able to add salt, or not, to their own taste.  -  30 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Easy and fast! Tasted wonderful, will be making again. I added red pepper flakes and used diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil. Added okra too. It was fabulous.  -  21 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Well, I guess I've never tasted the original recipe. But this sounded good, so I tried it. It was very fishy & nobody would eat it, including me. Sorry to say I wasted alot of money & alot of catfish, only to throw it down the drain.  -  22 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
