This was a great recipe! My husband was really surprised. I cut down the red pepper to about 1/8 tsp and used the "milder" Ro-tel tomatoes. Tht was plenty of spice for us - any more and we would not have been able to taste the fish!

This was excellent!! I would however, leave off the cayenne pepper next time. The can of tomatoes and green chilies would be plenty of peppers. My husband and I loved it and even though we both like spicy food agreed that it was a little too peppery.

This dish turned out quite good, i served it over steamed rice, which was a nice absorbant for the spiciness of the fish. I used the indicated amount of spices per each medium size catfish filet, which made it quite spicy & flavorful indeed. Perhaps sprinkled on would make it a little milder.
