A buddy and I went fishing yesterday; we did not plan to keep any of the fish, but three of the channel cats we got were bleeding from the gills very badly. Two of them were 15 inch and the other was 12 inches, they where not big, but I did end up with enough fillet to give me a meal. My question is, how should I cook it? The only way I have ever had fish was broiled with lemon pepper, on a camping trip we took a couple weeks ago. It came out good, and that may be what I do with these fillets; although, I want to try other ways of doing it. What do you guys think I should do? I am not a very good cook, so try to keep it simple!

Also, when broiling fish, what seasonings do you like?

With catfish you roll them in cornmeal and deep fry.

I will season the cornmeal with a little salt and pepper.

way down here in the south we fry our catfish and cook up a big batch hush puppies (not shoes). Talk about some good eating.

If there fresh caught I like to take catfish, skin 'em, gut 'em remove the head and the side fins, and deep fry with the bones still them.

When you eat it, just cut along the spine and around the rib cage, and remove the meat.

Now it may a mud taste because they are bottom feeders. But catfish is my favorite fish.

Ryan, to get recipes you ask about let your computer do your work. Just do a search for what ever and you will be surprise at what all comes up.

I tried that, but I can't find much that looks easy enough for me to handle. :D

Ryan.  They may be a bit muddy tasting.  I usually soak my fish overnight in salted water.  With the cats, soak in milk.  Tomorrow, drain the milk and roll in cornmeal with salt and pepper or a little old bay seasoning.  Fry them in a deep pan with at least a quarter to half inch of oil till golden brown at about 330 degrees.  Be sure to drain them well on paper towels.

 

If you get really ambitious, look up the hushpuppies recipe online and make some of them too.

 

Enjoy them.

Catfish, is not something, that we catch very often up here, so sorry

I can't give you any tips there.

 

But, there was mention of bottom feeders.

Well, the way we cook them, is that we hire a better lawyer. :smilewink:

We put them in a fresh water tank for a week before we clean them. It gets rid of the muddy taste.

 

I usually mix some miracle whip, bread crumbs, and a touch of lemon or lime juice, Just coat them lightly bake for about 1/2 hour at 375 until flaky. Salt and pepper to taste.

Like daytime dave said. Cornmeal, salt and pepper. That's my favorite. Not much in the way of bones to watch out for.
