Monday’s Bread Bowl: Fried Catfish

A Southern dish in a pinch

Here’s a tasty change of pace for the summer season. The Mixed Stew Crew sampled preseasoned and prepackaged breaded catfish from Capital Meats. They’re small seafood morsels with a lot of flavor. We fried them up in our handy cast-iron skillet and canola oil -- more like saute-frying as opposed to deep-frying. Capital Meats cuts out the labor and mess of dredging in flour and eggwash. The cooking process was relatively fast and convenient. We were able to purchase the catfish at a discount, promotional price. We're not sure regular list price is the way to go and recommend you keep an eye out at your local supermarket for sales on seasoned catfish. Sometimes, preseasoned just is the way to go when the weather is beautiful and you don't want to spend too much time prepping a meal.
