Good place for catfish

Tara1748 Nov 2, 2010 01:31 PM

I am originally from the Southern US, and I have been having a craving for some good catfish for a long time, fried catfish if possible. Does anyone know where to get good catfish? Preferably on the west end of the city or in Mississauga or Brampton, but will go anywhere if I absolutely have to. :)

    It's not a huge favorite here. Have never seen it regularly offered around Mississauga/Brampton in a form you'd recognize. Louisiana Seafood in Brampton has blackened catfish but a friend swears it was a pre-fab dish and hated it. You might have better luck trying to source fresh catfish for DIY. Sorry.

      Thanks, I thought there would be one good place for catfish in a big city like this, but I think I am going to just have to get a good recipe from a family member and make it myself :)

      Lucy's Seafood itchen has catfish...although I've never had it there so cannot attest to its quality.

      I wouldn't say its not a huge favourite here, but the style of fish tends to find its way to more south american restaurants as cajun/creole are few and far between.

        Southern accents. Love the blackened catfish!
