If you have eaten catfish all your life, you can tell a big difference between the side fillets and the belly meat. I was wondering what special recipes some of you would have that might improve the taste of the belly meat. I usually soak mine in mustard water which give it a better flavor or when a neighbor asks for a bag of fish, guess what they get. (Of course it depends on which neighbor!) As far as the sides I want salt, pepper and corn meal.
