another fresh seafood idea

A versatile fish, catfish can be prepared in a variety of ways. Try grilling, broiling, steaming, stir-frying or other favorite cooking methods.

Prepare tartar sauce beforehand and allow flavors to blend, if possible.

Combine cornmeal and seasonings. Roll fish in seasoned cornmeal. Place fish in single layer in hot oil in large skillet. Fry over moderate heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until golden brown on one side. Turn and fry on other side until fish are golden brown and flake easily when tested with a fork. Drain on paper towels. Serve with tartar sauce. Serves 6.

Tartar Sauce:

Mix all ingredients together. Chill and allow flavors to blend. Store in refrigerator. Makes about 1 cup.
