catfish sloppy joe

With Catfish in season to catch again this recipe will come in handy.

8 oz skinless catfish (or tilapia) fillet, cut into 1/3-inch dice
Coarse salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 small onion, diced (about 3/4 cup)
1 small green bell pepper, diced (about 3/4 cup)
2 tsp paprika
1 cup barbecue sauce
Unsalted butter
2 oversized burger buns (or other soft rolls), split horizontally

Season catfish with salt. Heat medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. When pan is hot (drop of water will sizzle on contact), add oil, onion, and bell pepper. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in paprika and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add catfish and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently so all sides of fish come in contact with hot pan. Stir in barbecue sauce and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thick, about 10 to 12 minutes. Butter rolls and lightly toast, buttered side down, in skillet. Fill buns and serve hot.

OK ozvsfood…Where do you live? Recipe sounds, well, different. Sloppy Jos are good, just not sure when made with fish. Should you be wondering, I don’t care for fish tacos either, so it’s not your recipe, it’s just me. Is this a Southern recipe??? Just wondering!
