Risa's Catfish and Rice (GF Grill)

Recipe By : RisaG
Serving Size : 2 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Fish & Seafood Grilling & Bbq

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 lb catfish fillets -- 2-3 small fillets
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 tsp coarse salt
1 tbsp China Grill seasoning -- or 5 Spice Powder
1 cup white rice
2 cups water
1 tsp coarse salt
2 tsp oriental sesame oil -- Kadoya brand prefer.
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce

Put white rice, water and salt into a microwaveable container (1-1/2 qt is big enough but bigger is ok too) and cover with plastic wrap. Place in microwave and cook on HI for 13-15 minutes until all water is absorbed and rice is tender. Fluff with a fork. Sprinkle with sesame oil and soy sauce. Mix together until sauce covers all of the rice. Cover and set aside.

While rice is cooking, put cornmeal, salt and China Grill seasoning (or 5 spice powder) in a shallow pie plate. Coat catfish fillets with cornmeal mixture.

Preheat the GF Grill. When hot, spray grill with olive oil cooking spray and put catfish on grill. Spray the tops of the fillets with the spray too. Close and cook for 2 minutes. Pick up cover and turn fish over (not necessary but I find that the bottom grid makes nicer lines than the top). Close and cook for another 2-3 minutes, depending on thickness of fish. When done, unplug and take fish off.

To serve: Place 1/2 cup of rice on plate,in center place accompaniment on both sides of rice. Place fish fillet on top of rice. Sprinkle with extra sesame oil (or your favorite oriental sauce) on plate and a little on top of fish.
