oven-baked catfish fillets

Seven years after I started this cookbook, I finally managed to find a fish I had not tried before. I must admit I had a bit of a prejudice against catfish, being farmed and a bottom feeder.

Some of them have the same unpleasant taste I have come to associate with tilapia, also a farmed fish. Also like tilapia, the ones that didn't have that flavor were quite nice.
