Catfish aren’t the prettiest thing to look at! They have a face only a mother would love; but, we really enjoy the unique flavor of catfish.
I know catfish is supposed to be fried and it’s probably a sin not to do that; but, this recipe is great with its lowered fat intake. Fresh fish is likely one of the healthiest, low-fat foods you can eat. Not only is baking fish the best method, it’s also the quickest and easiest way of preparing it.
The horseradish in this recipe gives it a little zip along with the green onions and the great simple flavors blend perfectly with the catfish. If you like catfish, you’ll really be surprised with how tasty this is!
