    prudhomme blackening seasoning is popular. lots of people buy it and then add their own seasoning to it.

    Normally when I catch cats, I do a buttermilk soak overnight, then grill with a little hoisin. Simple, but yummy

    Man you go fryin' cats in corn meal you know y'all are going to need hush puppies. Maybe some o them Okra in the other thread. But you deff need some of the "jalapeno poppers" we had in Cocoa Beach at "La Cantina" a real old school dive on the way to the jetty port. You take whole jalapenos and slit around the top just enough to get a tiny spoon in there and scoop out at least a few seeds in a hap hazard manor. Then you stuff a wedge of cheese in there, batter and fry - or grill. Not only are they the bomb, but they are like Russian Roulette with Poppers due to the above mentioned "hap hazard" thing. One's mild and the next one's wild - you just never know . . .

    Did you live in Cocoa Beach or were you just passing through?

    You can skip the hushpuppies as long as you have grits. Fried fish and grits for breakfast...mmmMMMMmmmm!

    I cook catfish a couple ways. I like to substitute catfish in any sort of cajun seafood pasta. I like the texture and how it holds together when I cut it into strips.

    Also, I oven fry my catfish. I marinate in milk, then bread with equal parts cornmeal, bread crumbs, and grated parmesan. Also add salt, pepper, and onion flakes to taste. Bread the fish, and melt a tbs butter for each fillet and drizzle it over them. Then bake until done.

    My BIL lives on Merritt Island and we've been going down to visit for decades. When I was a kid we'd have fried fish and pancakes for breakfast.

    We lived on Merritt Island for about 25 years, and you never came to visit us when you were in town.

    Well had I known that . . .

    Hey - did you ever go to the Slow and Low? Best smoked and grilled wings I've ever had. I also like the sea weed salad at Grills. I could eat a fish taco at a different place every day when I'm down there.

    Did you work at the Cape?

    When I was a kid and lived in South Carolina we would cook catfish like this.
    I have never had catfish anywhere that tasted as good as this.

    The catfish filets would be dipped into beaten egg. Then a bit of cayenne pepper, then breaded with corn meal. Using a cast iron frying on a kettle grill when the oil was good and hot my dad would put the fish in the frying pan and then put the cover on the grill.

    If you do it this way you have to make cornbread hush puppies too.

    My dad still lives on Merritt island. When I talked to him the other day it was 40f at night, 50f+ during the day and 30mph winds. He said everyone was afraid spring break around there would be cancelled this year.
