Fish Casserole By Chizzy

A serving of fish casserole with rice
Hi,everyone,I'm Chizzy,a silent reader of WC,I really love variety and when I saw the post on
fish casserole by Deborah's Friend I decided to try It out.

2 Ginger
2 cloves Garlic
5 medium sized Tomatoes
5 small Pepper (ata rodo)
1 large onion
1 medium sized Catfish
1/2kg Beef
1 teaspoon Curry

 a pinch of thyme
3 Cabbage leaves
1 medium Green pepper
3 small Carrots
5 to 6 Runner beans
Vegetable oil.

Cut all your veggies. Then I boiled hot water to wash the catfish,reason I did this was because of its usually slimy. After that I boiled it with the beef which I already diced. I added curry and thyme and seasoning,I'm not trying to promote any brand but maggi chicken cubes does wonders for me. I blended the tomatoes,pepper,with ginger and garlic and one bulb of onion. when the meat and fish got boiled I noticed

that my fish was a little bit overcooked **can't watch** this was as a result of the fact that the water I used to wash the fish was too hot.
   I put oil on in a dry pot,when it got hot,I put in my diced onion and fried it.then added the blended paste. after it was fried for about 10 minutes,I now added seasoning. then added the stock from the meat and the beef.I didn't add my fish so it won't scatter.  after the stock had blended well into the stew,I added all my veggies (green pepper,carrot,cabbage,runner beans) this shouldn't get over cooked o!cos vegetables are best eaten fresh and that's how u retain the vitamins.
 I boiled rice,and then....yummy!lol,this actually tastes better than it looks. I didn't have time to take professional pics. pardon me please.

    I think its best to use hot water for d cat fish( not ice fish)it doesn't scatter d fish at all and removes all d slime on d fish skin. Lukewarm water can't do dat.

    Chizzy, Ʊ can use salt to wash away the slim, just soak ur fish in salty water...after a while, use ur hands 2 remove the slime....ur fish would cum out clean...
