CATFISH GALORE!

Wednesday afternoon Dickidoo called and said 'Don't cook supper, I've got some catfish!'  Hey, he didn't have to say it twice.  First of all I love when I don't have to worry about the evening meal and secondly.... I LOVE catfish!  I was waiting when he arrived home later that evening, and in his hands he had a cake pan wrapped carefully with foil.  I opened it up and literally gasped.  There had to be 2 dozen catfish fillets in the pan.  24 perfectly seasoned, lightly breaded and deep fried fillets.  I had them for every meal since then with the exception of the field trip, until they ran out yesterday afternoon.  Catfish with tartar sauce, catfish with ranch dressing when the tartar sauce ran out, I had them plain when I realized that they taste awesome just the way they were, I had a couple stuffed between two slices of soft white bread, and yes, I even had Breakfast catfish!  I've eatten so much fish that I'm starting to feel like a seal.  But a fat, happy and well fed seal!  The neat thing about catfish is.... it doesn't give you gas.  That was definitely a good thing considering the amount I had consumed in the past 3 days.

The only fish I'll eat is Salmon.  If I ever try Catfish (which I highly doubt), I'll remember the one main thing about it.  It doesn't give you gas! lol  Are you sick of it yet?

We love catfish, too.  Although now that we have a pet channel cat I feel guilty about eating them.  LOL

Did someone say fried food? I've never had catfish, but I'll eat anything with crispy breaded delicious crispiness. Glad you enjoyed your fish :)

I need to link this to my journal. I am sometimes teased for my fondness for canned reduced fat corned beef hash.... having a catfish sandwich for breakfast is *slightly* stranger. *snicker* heather

And is he called Dickidoo b/c his gut sticks out further than his "dickidoo"? Just wondering.... h

I've never had catfish, but sounds good the way you describe it!  we had flounder last night, is it similar in taste to that?
