Catfish with Spiced Fruit Salsa

Catfish with Spiced Fruit Salsa

Usher in the weekend with an impressive yet simple mainstay from Merrillville, Indiana’s Karen M. Catfish with Spiced Fruit Salsa comes together quickly on the stovetop but gets its flavor from an abundance of seasonings.

Enjoy your supper with glasses of Ashley B.’s Pineapple Cooler. The Huntsville, Alabama subscriber relies on pineapple and lemon juices as well as coconut and vanilla extracts for the citrus beverage.


  • Green beans
  • Corn bread


  • If catfish isn’t a family favorite, fix the main course using orange roughy instead.
  • To cut dinnertime prep, Karen sometimes uses her microwave to prepare the salsa for the fish.
  • Keep the salsa in mind for future recipes. You’ll find that it’s a light yet lip-smacking way to jazz up grilled chicken, pork or even steak.
  • When mixing the Pineapple Cooler recipe, consider stirring up an additional batch and freezing it in ice cube trays. The flavored cubes will keep glasses cold at supper without watering down the citrus beverage.
