Fish and Cats

Cooking fish with cats in the house takes on a whole new dimension.  At least in my house, it drives them wild.  There is all manner of misbehavior going on – and begging.  How un-cat like, how undignified.  My favorite way to serve fish is brushed lightly with oil and then broiled or grilled and served with lemon juice.  I like firm white fishes, cod, haddock and meaty fillets like swordfish and tuna. 

 

Here’s a nice light, quick recipe.  Serve with rice and a vegetable.

 

Fish in Lime Sauce

  • 4-6 oz fresh white fish
  • ¼ cup white wine (non-alcoholic ok)
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp limejuice
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground coriander
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ red pepper, seeded and sliced
  • ½ green pepper, seeded and sliced

wok or skillet

 

Cut fish into large cubes. Mix together wine, broth, cornstarch, honey & spices, set aside.  Heat ½ oil in wok or skillet and sauté peppers 1 to 2 minutes, remove from wok.  Heat remaining oil, add fish and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes until fish flakes easily.  Push fish to the sides of the wok, add sauce to middle, cook and stir until it bubbles and thickens. Return peppers to the wok, stir all ingredients together and cook for 1 minute.
