Crispy Pan-Fried Catfish

Crispy Pan-Fried Catfish

A fish's texture determines how it should be prepared. Dense, sturdy fish, such as amberjack, can be cooked almost any way, while softer-textured fish, such as catfish and red snapper, should be baked or sautéed--they tend to fall apart when grilled or steamed.
