Mexican Catfish Fajitas

Servings: 4 (serving size: 1 fajita)


  • 1 pound catfish fillets, cut into 8 strips
  • 2 teaspoons fajita seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup sliced green bell pepper
  • 1 cup sliced onion

  1. Sprinkle both sides of fish evenly with fajita seasoning. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove fish from pan. Add bell peppers and next 3 ingredients (through garlic) to pan; cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomato; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in soy sauce; cook 1 minute. Add the fish; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat.

  3. Serve immediately with baked chips and tropical fruit salad.
