All this talk about Cast Iron has me breaking out mine. Used the Kettle on an Induction Burner. Worked really good. Easy to keep temp. Always had a hard time getting good crispy fish until I watched Kent Rollins. His method is the best! I had a heck of time finding Catfish that does not have STPP! That stuff does not belong in fish or seafood!

The hush puppies are a recipe from the oldest still in operation restaurant in Texas. The Stage Coach Inn. Some of my coleslaw and green tomato relish which is a Texas staple with catfish. Just missing the sweet onions.

That looks delicious!
I think that fried whole catfish are about the best fried fish you can get.
We used to go to an all you can eat catfish restaurant at least once a week, when I was younger & could eat my weight in catfish. Not worth it now.

I love fried fish and hushpuppies and yours looks great Brian! I’ll take a plate and a few splashes of vinegar on mine.

That looks awesome! Great work on a really tasty meal! Man, it’s been a while since I’ve had fried catfish, I have a craving now! But……never made it. Maybe I should learn! Thanks for the post!

I love catfish, and especially catfish steaks! Some decent big river boys, steaks cut about 1" thick!

River and lake catfish the best! These farm raised dont have much flavor. I never had much luck catching catfish. If I ever find a boat I will do some baiting.

Nice job Brian, fish looks great ,and the plate looks filling

Never had fresh water cat fish, but some day. Had saltwater catfish ( blue fish, or wolffish )
nice white flesh and a little sweet flavor, almost as good as Haddock some say , Haddock for me first

Thanks. The Stage Coach Inn are different than the norm. I like them for a change. I been adding lemon juice and rind to coleslaw lately. Really like the taste it adds.

Thanks. Only made a dent in it! You need to try. River Catfish the best. Farmed pretty mild.
