Catfish Courtbouillon

2 lg Catfish fillets (or any firm fish)
1 c Onions, chopped fine
1/2 c Celery, chopped fine
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1/3 c Butter
1/3 c Flour
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Black pepper
1/4 ts Cayenne pepper (or more, for real Cajun flavor)
3 lg Tomatoes, peeled and quartered (or use about a 1 lb can of tomatoes)
3 c Water
2 c Rice (cooked), hot

In a deep skillet or dutch oven mix the butter and flour together over low heat to form a roux (a thick, smooth, bubbly mixture). Add the onions, celery and garlic and saute until tender. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, cayenne and water. Simmer covered for 20-30 minutes. Add fillets and cook until tender and flaky, 15-20 minutes. Serve on a bed of rice.
