Reserving any oil still in the bag, place filets on sprayed foil & pile curry mixture on their tops, using it all & covering them completely; drizzle with the remaining oil mixture, & bake at 425º for about 15 minutes. Powerful flavor, most unusual, but good.

Spicy Blackened Catfish

2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon sugar- I omit this
1/2 teaspoon salt- I omit this
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 catfish fillets (about 1 pound)
1 large garlic clove, sliced thin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
lemon wedges as an accompaniment

In a small bowl combine the paprika, oregano, thyme, cayenne, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Pat the catfish dry, and sprinkle the spice mixture on both sides of the fillet, coating them well.

In a large skillet saute the garlic in the oil over moderately high heat, stirring, until it is golden brown and discard the garlic. Add the butter, heat it until the foam subsides, and in
the fat, saute the catfish for 4 minutes on each side, or until it is cooked through. Transfer the catfish fillets with a slotted spatula to 2 plates and serve them with the lemon wedges.

The request for spaghetti sauce that appeared recently in your wondrous newsletter coincided with my own experiments with a microwave version to run on my food blog. After just a few trials, I have one that at least I like as well anything in a jar, and yet doesn't take all that much more time than opening a jar.

This is actually a preview for the Landers as it won't appear on my http://www.vegasdiningflashes.com/
until next Thursday.

PDQ Pasta Sauce
Makes about 4 cups

1 c water
3 t beef bouillon
2 T butter
12-oz can tomato paste
1 c vegetable juice
1/2 T Italian seasoning, plus extra 1 t each oregano & basil
3-4 garlic cloves, mashed to a paste with 1/4 t salt
1 t ea honey & red wine vinegar
fresh ground pepper to taste {I used about a dozen grinds}

Microwave the water in a 4-cup glass measure till very hot, a minute to a minute and a half, then carefully add bouillon and butter {if it’s still bubbling ferociously it could splash} until all is dissolved. Then whisk in tomato paste until the mixture is smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients and whisk gently until all is incorporated then for about 30 sec with as much enthusiasm as possible without sending it over the edge. Return to the microwave, cover and cook for 2 min, stir, then continue cooking until hot, about another 2-3 miinutes. Stir and serve immediately over hot pasta. Some chopped parsley on top makes it pretty.
