Fish Sloppy Joes

So I know the picture of this makes it a frighteningly vibrant shade of red, but I promise it's quite tasty!

Fish Sloppy Joe

2 filets of some white, mild fish- tilapia, catfish, pangasius (which strangely I found IS related to catfish)
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped (I used a red one, but any color works)
1 tsp paprika
3/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp prepared mustard
salt, onion powder, and garlic powder to sprinkle on the fish

Season the fish with a little salt, onion powder, and garlic powder and dice into small pieces (1/2" or so).

Heat a little oil in a skillet and toss in the onion and bell pepper. Saute until they begin to soften (approx 3 minutes), and then add in the paprika. Saute another couple of minutes, stirring frequently.

While the veggies are cooking, mix together the ketchup, garlic powder, brown sugar and mustard in a small bowl. Set aside.

Add the fish to the pan and cook for a minute or two. Stir frequently so that all sides of the fish touch the pan.

Pour in your sauce and bring it to not quite boiling. Drop the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes or until your sauce thickens. Serve over toasted buns!

I love your first line - frighteningly bright red...hee hee....someone just told me that they thought my Swedish pancakes looked like shaved deli meat. Oh well, our pics don't always have to be great, but at least we know they are tasty. :)
Thanks for joining in on Tasty Tuesday.
