Catfish Fillets!!

Catfish Fillets!! (Not Smoked)

I decided to forget the high calorie breading on these, and go right to the KISS method.

I soaked the fillets in salt water for 5 or 6 hours.
Then rinsed them real good, and patted them dry.

Then put a bunch of Butter in the pan, and got things going.
I couldn't get them all in one pan, so I did two batches.

Once they were about half way done, all I did was sprinkle a good amount of "Old Bay" seasoning on both sides.

Removed when they had a little browning on the outside, and were soft all the way through.

Salt & Pepper to taste while eating.

Can't get any easier than that!

Catfish has always been my favorite eating fish!

Thanks for looking,
Bear




Soaking to get blood out:
