Catfish with spicy tartar sauce and no carbs!

Number of Servings: 1


    1catfish fillets (wild)
    1 1/2tbsp mayonnaise
    1tsp garlic cloves, chopped , roasted, smashed
    2tsp fresh cilantro , chopped
    1/2tsp fresh lime juice
    1pinch black pepper , freshly ground
    1pinch salt (sea salt, if available)
    1cooking spray


1 To prepare the tartar sauce: In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, cilantro, lime juice, mashed roasted garlic, chipotle pepper, and cayenne. Mix well and set aside.
2 Season both sides of the catfish evenly with fresh black pepper and sea salt.
3 Set a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it is hot enough for a drop of water to sizzle on it.
4 With an oven mitt, briefly remove the pan from the heat and lightly spray with some grapeseed oil or olive oil spray.
5 Place the catfish in the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until nicely browned. Reduce the heat to medium, turn the filets over and cook for about 2-3 minutes more, or until the catfish flakes easily. Be careful not to overcook.
6 Transfer to a serving plate. Spoon the tartar sauce over the top. Garnish with watercress leaves, if desired. Serve immediately
