Broiled Catfish with Artichokes and Tomatoes

It has taken me a while to appreciate fish, but I have come to love mild fish like Catfish and Mahi Mahi and I’m learning to enjoy more flavorful fish like Salmon. There is one thing I have always liked about fish:  You can cook it in under 10 minutes in the broiler. Fish is the ultimate fast food; you can’t even prepare pizza out of a box in the time it takes to make fish.

Last week, I had a horrid virus. No matter what I did I just couldn’t shake the fever. At one point I was shivering so violently that I wondered if it qualified as exercise. 😉 My husband did most of the cooking, so the kids ate waffles on more than one occasion.

When I started to feel better and ventured back into the kitchen, I kept it simple and prepared Broiled Catfish with Artichokes and Tomatoes. I used frozen artichoke hearts and frozen diced tomatoes, so it cut down on the amount of prep work.

    I’m so glad you are feeling better now, Alea!

    I really like the tomatoes and artichokes in this lovely recipe, and I like the honey too! I think this recipe would be nice with any mild fish, although I’d love to have catfish again one day. It’s not available in the UK and the last time I had it was a very long time ago on a fishing trip!
