Preparation / Directions:
Cut fillets into 1-in pieces. Heat oil in large pan. Add flour, stirring until brown. Remove from heat and add water slowly, stirring until blended.
Add all ingredients except catfish and rice. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaves, add catfish and simmer 8 - 10 minutes more until fish flakes to the fork.
Serve over rice in soup bowls. Possibly better to wilt all fresh vegetables before adding to pan.
