Question Catfish chunks

I just bought some catfish chunks and they are thawing. Suggestions on what to do with them?

They call them catfish nuggets here. I just toss them to coat in seasoned cornmeal. Or you can use a commerical brand in the seafood dept of the store for deep frying fish. Then deep fry until light brown (fish cooks very quickly).

I have not tried the recipe for cooking them in boiling water. It says to drop them into boiling water for a minute or two. But I have microwaved catfish nuggets and added them to a seafood salad. That will preserve the fishy flavor if you like it.

You could also do an equal parts beer and flour, mix, let set on counter for a couple hours, coat, then deep fry. Salt and pepper right after they come out.

Or you could make salt and pepper catfish - which is just as it seems, a breading with a little too much salt and a LOT too much pepper. The fish is rather bland so the coating makes up for it.
