• catfish fillets (our Sams Club out here in Kansas had them and I about flipped my you know what when I saw them)
  • blackened seasoning (I used Old Bay.  It was surprisingly lower in sodium than the others I checked)
  • quick cooking grits (not instant)
  • smoked cheese- gouda, edam, etc., shredded (use good judgement.  this isn’t pizza)
  • Tastes Like Fried Okra
  1. Preheat oven to 375.  Rub seasoning into fish and place on a foil lined baking dish with non-stick spray.  Bake until an internal temperature of 150.
  2. Make the okra.
  3. Cook grits according to label. Add cheese.

This is a pretty basic recipe, but it was really good.  There’s not too much sweet tea out here in the Midwest, so it’s always nice to have a taste of home.  Also check out Lipton Southern Style Sweet Tea.  It is our FAVORITE- and it’s calorie free.  Winning.
