To Make a Curry of Catfish


  • white channel catfish
  • 2 onions
  • chopped parsley
  • 1 spoonful of butter
  • 1 spoonful of flour
  • 1 large tea-spoonful of curry powder


Take the white channel catfish, cut off their heads, skin and clean them, cut them in pieces four inches long, put as many as will be sufficient for a dish into a stew pan with a quart of water, the onions, and chopped parsley; let them stew gently till the water is reduced to half a pint, take the fish out and lay them on a dish, cover them to keep them hot, rub the butter into the flour, add the curry powder, thicken the gravy with it, shake it over the fire a few minutes, and pour it over the fish; be careful to have the gravy smooth.
