Marinated Catfish Fillets Recipe

Marinated Catfish Fillets Recipe

Meet the Cook: Recently, we hosted a group of young people from Canada. Since we wanted to give them a true taste of the South, this was served. They raved about it. In addition to the catfish we raise, my husband and I grow soybeans and corn. We're the parents of four children - ages 16, 13, 7 and 3. -Pauletta Boese, Macon, Mississippi
