I do love this forum for so very many opinions and ideas!

When we post of these recipes, has anyone gotten angry over a recipe or has anyone berated anyone who posted a recipe?

I'm just very curious of this. For me, I just love all of you and if one tries my posted recipe, it's very nice, and for those who don't, it's very nice also!

Many people have certain tastes. I do thank you all for your honesty.

With love,
~Cat
Well, I don't think anyone got angry, but we did get a bit of a heated discussion over "goulash". It turns out there are two very distinct kinds. "Hungarian Goulash" (Goulash - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and "American goulash" (American goulash - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

We also might get a bit heated if someone insists that their recipe is the only authentic version of something or is the absolute, best version thereof.

My church does an outreach fish fry every May. We get the fish from a fishing tournament in memory of my best friend who was a big fisherman. There is always about 4 frying stations for both catfish and crappie. My favorite station marinates the fish in Texas Pete and buttermilk, heavy on the Texas Pete, then dredges in cornmeal. We only have one cornmeal in Georgia (Martha White). Add some slaw and some sweet tea. UMMMMMMMMM.

You must have a very big issue with taste Addie if the fish tasted like gasoline? Or the fish was actually soaked in gasoline!
Have you ever tasted gasoline to know how it should taste? LOL.

Catfish to me is less fishy tasting than many other fishes. Its pure white and its flavor is very mild.
I also do not like cornmeal coatings. But I do like House Autry™ seafood breader mix. I think its fine white corn meal and flour at 50% each, with seasoning. Pretty good for store bought.

Has catfish always tasted like gas, or was it just this one time?

Have you ever filled the tank on a lawn mower? Filled a tank on a tractor? Ever suctioned out gasoline from one tank and failed to pull the hose out of your mouth in time? Well, when you do, often times the fumes come back at you and you can get taste of the gasoline in your mouth.

The catfish I had tasted was caught in a large fresh water lake. One where a lot of boating goes on. Considering that, I am not surprised it had the taste of gasoline.

But of course my recipes are perfect and authentic! I steal them from other people.

Although it's never easy to tell when you can't see someone's face. I don't recall anyone ever getting truly angry. Having said that, people often have very strong opinions on things related to food.

But I suppose that's why this forum is called Discuss Cooking.

This does not compute

Petroleum products float on the surface and catfish are bottom dwellers. Never the tween shall meet. However, if the person who caught the catfish, tossed them in the bilge, maybe.
