Kitchen Diaries: Blackened Spiced Catfish and Poblano-Cheddar Grits

January 4, 2016


I’ve always wanted to try out Blue Apron, the company that sends fresh ingredients for meals that you prepare at home, but was reluctant due to the price and uncertainty about whether I’d enjoy the meals. Thankfully, my friend Becky got me a free one-week trial, which included three meals with portions for two. The first recipe I tried was the Spiced Catfish and Poblano-Cheddar Grits, and I must have to admit, it was simply delicious — a restaurant-quality meal prepared by yours truly. To start, here’s the skinny on what was inside this feast.

Ingredients (2 servings):

½ bunch Collard Greens
1 Poblano Pepper
1½ ounces Cheddar Cheese
1 tablespoon Butter
2 tablespoons Spiced Catfish Spice Blend (Rice Flour, Ancho Chile Powder, Ground Cumin and Smoked Paprika)
