What is so special about U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish?
Well for one thing, it has a consistently mild, sweet flavour and firm texture that makes it one of the most versatile fish on the market. Enjoy it blackened, steamed or poached, grilled, barbecued, baked or broiled. But the appeal of U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish goes beyond taste: it is a lean fish and an excellent source of protein.
It also offers a quick and delicious meal in a flash (cooking time is approximately 10 minutes per fillet) and there is no fishy odour. No one has a more discerning palate than a world-class chef. Here is what they have to say about U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish:
“U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is incredibly versatile. It absorbs seasonings beautifully, taking on the flavour of whatever you prepare with it. I am also very impressed with how this fish is raised � in a pristine environment with very little time between the pond and the plate.”
– Lucy Waverman, food columnist, editor and author
“It’s easy to see why U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is rapidly growing in popularity. I find that the firm texture lends itself to a number of different preparation methods, and the clean growing environment and surface feeding of the fish result in a nice, mild taste.”
– Christine Cushing, chef and television host, Christine Cushing Live
“It’s a fish that is incredibly fresh and undeniably succulent. It has a flavour and texture all its own and is also versatile. The one word that I would use to describe catfish is luscious.”
– Charlie Trotter, chef, Charlie Trotter’s restaurant
“Whenever I prepare a menu for a special guest at Chinois on Main, they always ask for ‘Sizzling Catfish.’ It has become one of our signature dishes.”
– Wolfgang Puck, chef and restaurateur
