Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/8 cup chopped celery
  • 1/8 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons margarine, plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 pound catfish fillets, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid crab boil
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mixed Cheddar and mozzarella
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Saute the onion, celery, and pepper with 3 tablespoons of the margarine. When wilted, add the catfish chunks and the remaining 1 tablespoon margarine together with liquid crab boil and mix well. As catfish cooks, break up fish with a cooking spoon. Set catfish mixture aside.

  • In a microwave oven, melt cream cheese on HIGH for 1 minute. Add ketchup, parsley, and pepper and mix well. Fold cream cheese mixture into catfish mixture and add Italian bread crumbs.

  • Microwave mixture on HIGH for 8 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking. Cut French bread lengthwise. Place on cookie sheet, sliced side up. Spread catfish mixture on each length of bread. Sprinkle with mozzarella and cheddar mixture.

  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Cut into individual slices. Serve and enjoy!
