Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

My family likes this one to alternate during fishing season. I got this recipe off the Recipe.com site, but had to make some alteration to match some of the catches. It can be done with all the fishes, but for cat fishes, eels, carps, or gamey fishes, I made some notation to follow as catfish added extra.

What's needed:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Use 2 for the catfish.
  • 1 large onion, chopped into 1/4in.
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed, and best if you can pound it to submission with pestle and mortar. For catfish, go with 5 or 6 cloves.
  • 1 pound of any fish fillets, cut into 1.5in x 1.5in chunks.
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of yellow curry powder. For fresh catfish, my suggestion to go with 3tspn, but use either green or orange curry powder for the extra flavor enhancement that best match with the catfish.
  • 2 tsp chili powder.
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric. 2 for catfish.
  • 1 tsp ground cumin. 2 for catfish.
  • salt and pepper to taste. Catfish will need it.
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk.
  • 2 handful of fresh vegetable medley. Combination is best with cauliflower, broccoli, snowpeas/snap peas, bellpeppers, and lotus root/celery.
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (pre-mix in a 3 tbsp of cold water.
  • cilantro (optional)
  • cabbage (optional)

Cooking direction:

  1. Bring the water and rice to a boil in a pot. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes., or cook longer just until the brown rice gets a bit tender.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and cook 1 minute. Mix in fish chunks, and season with curry powder, chili powder, turmeric, cumin, salt, and pepper. Pour in the coconut milk, and mix in frozen vegetables. Cover, and cook 5 to 10 minutes, or until vegetables are still crunchy/soft (your choice) and fish is easily flaked with a fork.
  3. Pour cornstarch solution to thicken sauce. Serve the mixed fish-veggie combo over the cooked rice.
  4. I like to add chopped cilantro over the meal for added flavoring and texture, while a bed of cabbage at the bottom for texture and fulfillment. I eat a lot. I'm a big boy, growing sideway.
