    Clean Catfish

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

    Best Fish to Fry

    The best fish for frying tends to be lean and neutrally flavored, like catfish. (Oysters and peeled shrimp work great, too, of course!) Heartier fish like tuna and snapper are best for grilling or pan-searing.
