Expert Tips

Catfish, so named because it has whiskers like a cat, is found in freshwater rivers, lakes and ponds and in salt water. As its sweet, mild flesh has gained popularity, more and more catfish is being produced in ponds on fish farms, a process called aquaculture.

Cod or orange roughy would work very well in place of catfish.

Drizzle broiled catfish with fresh lemon juice in place of high-fat tarter sauce.
