Deanie’s Shows you how to Prepare and Fry up the Perfect Catch

Trying to cook the perfect fish dish? Farm-raised catfish is an affordable fish that can easily be incorporated into a wide variety of dishes that can please any palette. Catfish can be used in most any recipe calling for whitefish such as tilapia, haddock or cod. With its mild flavor, catfish can take the place of chicken in just about any recipe. In addition to the wide variety of ways to cook catfish, there are just as many healthy aspects of this fresh fish.

According to the LiveStrong Foundation, a 3-ounce serving of plain, cooked catfish contains 122 calories, 55 of which are contributed by fat. Low in cholesterol, catfish is an excellent source of protein and heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and contains 100% of the daily requirement of vitamin B12.

Posted by Karen Hales on Aug 13 2019

Learn About High Quality Catfish

As Mark Twain once said, “The catfish is plenty good enough fish for anyone.” Farm-raised catfish is one of the most affordable, environmentally sustainable sources of high-quality protein available to American consumers today. U.S. farm-raised catfish has been one of the top 10 most-consumed seafoods in the United States for the past 20 years.

Catfish is by far the widest produced freshwater fish in the country, and farm-raised catfish is the largest aquaculture in the United States. Ninety-four percent of all U.S. farm-raised catfish is raised in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, and catfish contributes about $4 billion per year to each of the state's economies.

Unlike other seafood, not all shrimp are created equal. There are almost as many different species of shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico as there are ways to cook shrimp.

These species of shrimp —collectively known as "Gulf Shrimp’"—come almost exclusively from the Gulf of Mexico with 97 percent of domestic shrimp harvested in the United States coming from the Gulf.
