Catfish used to be the most common choice in the fish departments here in the Bay Area. And they were one of the cheapest.
I recently noticed I never see them anymore. What happened? Did tastes and cooking styles change? Did their farms get wiped out by the hurricanes of recent years?
I like catfish and grew up with them (used to catch 'em in our local waters). Plus, they are vegetarian and don't produce the pollution problems you get with farmed salmon.
