When I was growing up in California, my mother made catfish quite often, and it was always a hit. Now I cook it with my own twist. When only frozen catfish fillets are available, I thaw them in the refrigerator overnight, and they work just as well. —Mary Lou Cook, Welches, OR
“I grew up in Biloxi, Mississippi, where rice, garlic and seafood are staples in Gulf Coast cuisine," says Amie Overby, now of Reno, Nevada. "This dish is an easy, long-time family favorite that's ready in minutes.”

We sometimes send our delicious Washington salmon all the way to Michigan for my sister to use in this family-favorite dish! The tasty topping can be used on other types of fish, too. Fresh thyme from your garden really sparks the flavor.
"Since I love both salmon and Caesar salad, I created this 'delish fish' dish," relates Laurie LaClair from North Richland Hills, Texas. "It's hard to believe it takes so little effort to prepare such a showy company entree."
These crisp and crunchy shrimp make a tempting appetizer or a fun change-of-pace main dish. The coconut coating adds a little sweetness...and the tangy orange marmalade and honey sauce is great for dipping. It's impossible to stop munching these once you start!
