Okay, my wife, Wind In Her Hair (WIHH), has left for work. I have today off and would like to make her a surprise supper. Now as most of you know, WIHH is from Texas and I'm a fourth generation Minnesota yankee. I love to eat and catch fish, but all that I'm familiar with is walleye, northern pike, crappies and the like. WIHH keeps telling me how wonderful catfish is. Heck, I've never had catfish...it reminds me of bullhead...I hate bullhead! At any rate, I'm gonna surprise her by buying some fresh catfish that the supermarket has on sale...but the thing is, I don't know if there is any special way to prepare it to make it "southern-style." Do I prepare catfish by using my regular ol' breading mix or beer batter? Do I poach it in the oven like salmon? Do I grill it (hey, I still grill at below freezing temps). I NEED HELP!!! I wanna do this right! Is there a southern way of making catfish that will remind her of home??? A way to prepare it like all those catfish resturants do that I see when we visit down south. And if it ain't too much trouble, what about side dishes. Please hurry, this is gonna happen tonight. P.S. I don't need any help from any Iowegians or Cheeseheads.
