Reviews for Catfish Jambalaya
"Cooking the catfish in the jambalaya caused the taste of catfish to overpower everything else. I would recommend cooking the catfish separately and adding it right at the end so you get a more balanced mix of flavors."
"I had on hand about 1.2 lbs of catfish so I added a can of no salt added tomato sauce and 1/2 can of white beans as well as some thyme. I will make again, but I will add some addition spices such as basel and a total of 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne to make it spicier."
