Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 medium onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 2/3 cups uncooked instant white rice
  • 2 lb. (1/2 to 3/4-inch-thick) fresh fish fillets (catfish, halibut or walleye), cut into 4 serving-sized pieces
  • 2 Italian plum tomatoes, chopped

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of the bell pepper, onion, water, ketchup, chili sauce, oil, salt, dry mustard and pepper; mix well. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Boil 2 minutes.
  • 3
    Remove saucepan from heat; stir in lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce. Reserve 1/3 cup sauce. Stir rice into remaining sauce. Pour rice mixture into sprayed baking dish. Arrange fish fillets over rice mixture. Top with reserved sauce, tomatoes and remaining 1/4 cup bell pepper. Spray sheet of foil with cooking spray; place, sprayed side down, over baking dish.
  • 4
    Bake at 350°F. for 35 to 40 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.

  • Inspired by the Andalusian recipes of southern Spain, this casserole contains the sweet and spicy flavors of tomatoes, bell peppers and pepper-derived ingredients such as chili sauce.
  • Chili sauce is located near ketchup and other condiments in the grocery store. Do not confuse it with chili paste, a hot, spicy ingredient used in Asian cooking.
  • Farm-raised catfish is especially tasty in this recipe. Flounder or trout can also be used.
