The kind neighbor across the road blessed us not long ago with a gallon freezer bag full of filleted catfish. He suggested I semi-thaw it and package it in smaller portions, but I hesitate to re-freeze any meat, especially fish. I decided to invite my daughter's family over; there were six of them coming, and two of us. That bag of catfish looked like a lot more than eight people would be able to eat. My daughter likes to take pictures of her food and post them to Facebook.
Louisiana Fish Fry, you simply must! We like the New Orleans style; it's spicy, the way we like our fish. If you want it really spicy, dip the fish in buttermilk first; this gives a thicker, crispy coating that almost makes you want to slap your grandma. Oh, and we did manage to eat most of the catfish.
Pardon that expression, I think I picked it up from Cliff.
So, all in all it was a good family day. I can sure tell I'm getting older, though; cooking a big meal absolutely wears me out for the rest of the day!
