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.

Marinated Catfish Fillets Recipe photo by Taste of Home
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
3/4 teaspoon celery seed
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Place fillets in a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container; cover with salad dressing. Seal bag or cover container; refrigerate for 1 hour, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade.
Combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Remove 1 cup for basting. (Refrigerate remaining sauce for another use.)
Grill fillets, covered, over medium-hot heat for 3 minutes on each side. Brush with the basting sauce. Continue grilling for 6-8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning once and basting several times.
Editor's Note: Reserved sauce may be used to brush on grilled or broiled fish, chicken, turkey or pork.
