Hey, Uncle Bob, I have a question for you. What do you do to prepare your catfish? It always has such a sandy taste and I'd like to know how to get rid of that. I'm an Iron Ranger and we are used to preparing walleye for dinner. The BF likes catfish and I'm stumped as to how to deal with it. Thanks for any advice you care to toss my way. You are always such a gentleman. I'd have the vodka tonight, BTW. Clean, neat and somewhat healthy.

Nicholas, my eldest is 13 today, so we have friends around for a barbeque - got the gas grill out for the first time this year. Steak, chicken & sausages with salads and rolls. Followed by chocolate cake (made by DW last night) with chocolate filling and chocolate ganache and Carte D'or ice cream.

Hey Miss Nancy Jane...Ya must have Southern Blood in your genes...Two names is a "Southern" Thing... of sorts...

Hmmm "sandy" catfish...never heard of that one..."muddy" yes...and a few others terms...In short...I don't do anything to it...mostly just season, bread with a cornmeal based concoction, and fry...However..you could soak in buttermilk, or coat with yellow mustard, or with Louisiana (type) hot sauce...sprinkle on a little garlic can be interesting...or any other seasonings...Cajun/Creole...Greek...Italian...really anything that you like...
Hope this helps

Uncle "Billy Bob"

Thanks, Uncle Billy Bob! Yes, Sir, I do believe I have some Southern exposure. I love Southern cooking. I mean, I study it. That's why I want to learn how to make good catfish. Maybe we don't get such good fresh catfish up here. I'm thinking a good soak in buttermilk would help the flavor. Thanks for your help. You are the cream on the cake, Uncle BB.

Why Uncle Bob, for someone who stays away from that sort of thing you are sure enjoying those peppermint patties! Good for you. By the way, I know you didn't ask but I would stick to the bourbon!

Since we had leftover rice, I ll do DH's favorite pork chops..it's easy and tastes yummy ..I cube up four pork chops, put them in a baking dish and pour over a mix of catsup,lemon juice,brown sugar,garlic,Worcestershire a little water and some chutney and bake covered...we love this over the rice..A fruit salad is great with it and that is all we are having..Banana bread is dessert.
