Catfish? Casserole? Although both words begin with the letter "C," that's the only thing they have in common and should never be used in the same sentence, or anything else!

Put Tilapia in a casserole if you must. It's a trash fish that has no flavor of its own. But to mask the flavor of a nice piece of delicate and tasty catfish with cheese, curry or some other glop would be a crime!

...in my opinion.

A nugget to me suggests that theyvhave been fried.

Recooking it in a casserole would ruin them.

A "nugget" is a term for catfish belly...Sold in it's raw state everywhere here. ~~ It's basically inexpensive...Has a different texture when cooked and is No where as desirable as the catfish filet.......

No, the nuggets I buy have not been fried--they are pieces of belly meat, instead of filets. They are good, as long as you check carefully for bits of bone or fin.

I generally do fry them, however. Somehow a fish casserole just doesn't ring any bells for me.

Maybe I should have said that they are edible, Uncle Bob? No, they are not as good as filets.

Most anything is edible with a cornmeal crust!

The idea of making a dish like that turns my belly. As the idea of doing anything with Tilapia since most of it comes from China and you don't want to know more than that.

Actually, most of tilapia does not come from China. More than 80% is farmed right here in the U.S. southwest and south. The rest comes from Thailand.
