Catfish Catastrophe

Getting a Bargain???

Catfish for $4.29 sounded better than fillets for $5.79, so I bought it. “Yes, there are bones inside,” said the clerk behind the seafood counter as he wrapped up two fish. My butcher knife didn’t seem sharp enough, and it was hard to cut the flesh off. The only other time I’d cooked fish straight from the water, I’d cooked it bones and all before eating, so I’d never done this. What a chore. I ended up with odd-shaped pieces, but I rolled them in cornmeal and fried them anyhow.Since I couldn’t completely clean the flesh off the bones, I cooked that, bones and all, and ate it myself. Of course, now the flesh was easy to get off. When I told my husband how much the fillets cost, he said he’d rather buy steak. However, since he doesn’t like to take fish oil pills, I may buy the more expensive fillets from now on.
