    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,
