Catfish dessert? yuck...

I caught the last part of Iron Chef America last night and some "chef" served battered and deep fried catfish sprinkled with powdered sugar along with a side of chocolate sauce. C'mon... :?

I don't know if I'd like the dessert, but I LOVE catfish!!! I know it's a dirty scummy fish, but I like it. :-)

wasabi, my exact reaction. I do not like cat fish all and that sounds like a good waste of chocolate and confectioner's sugar.

i'm with you m.a.c.-jr. it sounds weird, but it could be good, so long as the catfish isn't stinky.

I have all my trips to Louisiana to blame for my catfish love, but I never do it myself because well I suck at choosing good fish and often end up with really fishy stuff.

Now if they did the chocolate like a mole that would rock, or even as a desser but with much more clove, cinamon and a little bit of mulato or chipotle pepper.

Im just not a fan of sweets so fish as a dessert already brings in one thing I dont like and pairs it with fish.
