    Blackened Cajun Catfish (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Blackening is a really fun way to cook fish. Nothing seems to beat the bold flavor that comes from a perfectly seared crust. Blackening fish on a cast-iron skillet creates intense heat and smoke so always work in a well-ventilated kitchen.

    The rub in this recipe is one of many variations on a classic Cajun rub and is also perfect for chicken, beef steaks, or even vegetables. You can mix it up by serving different fish; snapper and swordfish would also hold up really well. Serving fish with lemon not only cuts the intense flavor of the spices, but also gives the fish a refreshing bite.

    Ingredients:
    4 firm catfish fillets, 6-8 ounces each
    ½ cup olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
    1 large lemon, cut into 4 wedges
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon marjoram
    1 teaspoon coriander
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon paprika
    1 tablespoon ground red pepper
    2 teaspoons cracked peppercorns
    1 teaspoon coarse salt

    Directions:
    Combine all spices to create a rub and spread in a shallow pan. Set aside.

    Heat a large cast-iron skillet until very hot, about 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, rinse and pat dry fish. Generously coat both sides of each steak with oil and lay in the spice mixture. Turn to thoroughly cover both sides.

    Place two steaks in the heated skillet over medium-high and drizzle lightly with oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes and turn. Drizzle with a little more oil and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, depending on thickness of fish. Remove cooked fish.

    Add additional oil if necessary and repeat with remaining steaks.

    Serve with fresh lemon juice, one wedge per steak.

    Quinoa is the perfect gluten-free grain.  Full of protein and fiber, this delicious ancient grain serves as the ideal base for Thanksgiving stuffings and salads.  Here is a recipe that was modified from the "More Than Gourmet" website.
    Ingredients
    2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1 large rib celery, finely chopped
    1½ cups uncooked quinoa, rinsed
    1½ oz. Glace de Volaille Gold + 2 cups hot water (or two cups chicken or turkey stock)
    ½ cup orange juice
    ½ cup dried cranberries
    ½ cup chopped pecans, toasted
    Grated zest of 1 orange 
    3 Tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
    salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Preparation
    Heat the butter or oil in a medium casserole. Stir in the onion and celery and cook over medium heat until the onion is translucent and golden. Stir in the quinoa, pour in the diluted Glace de Volaille Gold and orange juice, bring to a boil, then turn the heat to low. Stir in the cranberries, cover and cook until all the liquid has evaporated, 12-15 minutes. Remove the cover and fluff with a fork. Stir in the pecans, orange zest, parsley, salt and pepper. Serve at once or keep warm over low heat, stirring occasionally.

    Simply put, this dish is yummy! It’s also an easy way of breaking the ice with okra for anyone who’s yet to try. I love this recipe because it’s such a great base. It’s delicious over rice or with sausage, shrimp, or pork chops. Okra has great texture, absolutely perfect with the soft tomatoes and peppers.
    Ingredients:
    3 cups okra, chopped into ½-inch pieces
    2 cups tomatoes, peeled and chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    4 slices bacon, chopped
    1 yellow onion, diced
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    A pinch of red pepper flakes
    Salt and pepper, about a teaspoon each
    Directions:
    Add bacon to a large, heated skillet and cook until crisp. Transfer to a towel and add onions to skillet. Sauté until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another minute longer.
    Add okra, tomatoes, and peppers and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Finish with bacon and pepper flakes and serve.

    I've been learning to love one pot, slow cook meals lately, and this southwest-inspired chicken dish is one of the results.
    It's easy to prepare and tasty to eat. I'm happy because I can put it on in the morning and have it ready for lunch or for dinner, depending on how high I cook it.
    Just prepare some rice, and you're ready for an easy, delicious dinner.
    Ingredients:
    4 boneless chicken breasts 15 ounce can black beans, drained 15 ounce can sweet corn, drained 15 ounce jar or can green or red salsa 8 ounce canned green chiles, drained 4 ounces sour cream 4 ounces Cotija cheese ½ teaspoon freshly ground coriander ½ teaspoon freshly ground cumin Salt and black pepper to taste cilantro, chopped as garnish avocado wedges, as desired lime wedges as garnish radishes as garnish Cotija cheese as garnish Directions:
    Put 4 boneless chicken breasts put into in a crock pot. If frozen, allow an extra hour or so to fully cook.
    Add drained corn, black beans, green chiles and spices, and a dash of salt and pepper.
    Cook on high for about 4 hours, or on low for about 8 hours, until chicken is cooked.
    Right at the end, stir in sour cream.
    Top with cilantro, avocado and garnish with extra cheese, lime and radishes as desired, and serve over rice.
