Clean Catfish

Be sure to remove the dark, fatty bits from your catfish, as these will carry an especially fishy flavor.

Reheat Fried Foods

To reheat your fried foods, let them come up to room temperature and then bake briefly in a 400-degree oven. Use a wire rack atop a baking sheet to keep too much steam from making things soggy.
