I was introduced to catfish while on a driving holiday through Arkansas and Missouri and quickly developed a taste for this thick-meaty fish. It is so versatile and forgiving you can cook it virtually any way you wish. Be aware of the nutmeg in the recipe - intolerance to nut products should be considered prior to preparation.
