In a small saucepan with a lid, combine rice and 1/4 teaspoon Sultan Papadopoulos Salt with 1 1/2 cups water. Place pot on high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until all the liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, leaving covered until ready to serve.
Prepare your mise en place: Slice tomatoes crosswise into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Finely chop rounded tops and base and set aside separate from slices.Finely chop green onions. Pick and chop cilantro. Chop catfish fillets into large pieces, roughly 2 inches per side.
In a mixing bowl, combine turmeric, Bragg aminos, and 1/4 teaspoon Sultan Papadopolous Salt. Add catfish pieces and turn to coat them evenly with the turmeric paste.
Place all-purpose flour in a small bowl. Add catfish to flour and turn to coat well. Pat gently to release excess, and set aside.
Heat 2 teaspoons cooking oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Place a clean plate by the stove to hold the catfish pieces after they are cooked. Add catfish pieces, leaving space between them. Cook undisturbed for until lightly browned on first side, 1-2 minutes. Turn and cook the other side until nicely browned, and firm and opaque throughout, 1 -2 minutes more.
Combine pea greens and chopped tomatoes in a mixing bowl. Stir in 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon Sultan Papadopoulos Salt.
Uncover rice and add green onions and cilantro. Stir well.
Season sliced tomatoes with salt, if desired. Serve catfish with rice, pea greens and tomatoes. Enjoy!
