An interesting new way with catfish that I found in the paper. I'm anxious to try this one out! From one of my favourite places, the Catfish Institute!

S'kat I know you haven't tried this one yet, so I feel a little bad about this review, but I know if you tried it you you would probably agree with me. I wanted to like this recipe - I love coffee, love catfish - sounded so interesting and promising! It wasn't interesting at all. It wasn't bad, though. Everyone cleared their plate. But - it had no flavor at all. Truly. Very bland. I followed the recipe EXACTLY. It was okay - the fish was well cooked. It was just bland.
