I am southern and thought there was nothing better than fried catfish and hushpuppies but this recipe proved me wrong! Being on a diet and having fresh catfish I decided to use this recipe. It did take me a while to dice and mince all the ingrediants and I didn't understand about the cutting the heart in the foil but tried and all the stuff fell out, so I just started over with small strips of foil, covered fish with salsa and crimped it completely closed which seemed to work great! It was most certainly worth the extra work I put into it and a lot of the prep could be done earlier. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us!
Catfish with Tomatillo Salsa in Packets
From EatingWell: July/August 2009
Tomatillos provide a distinctive tart flavor to a super-easy salsa that cooks with the catfish. Try it with tomatoes too.

Fantastic way to prepare catfish; the fish practically melts in your mouth (loses any hint of rubberiness). The salsa has just the right amount of tanginess, tartness, and underlying heat. Lots of variations come to mind with the recipe, but it's wonderful just the way it is.
