    This was very good. Because I don't like cooked carrots, I didn't have any but I can only imagine they would be an appetizing addition for someone who did like them. Very easy.

    This recipe has become one of my staples. Who would have thought--especially in the South--carrots, spinach and catfish would combine for such an absolutely delicious dish? Almost as appetizing as sliced bread!
