Is catfish the best tasting and least expensive fish among the sustainable fishes?
>>12469541All I know is I love me some fried catfish and sum mustard n biscuits mhmmmm.
>>12469541Yes. They often gain a reputation as "nigger fish" due to their bottom dwelling nature, the fact they can often be caught shoreside and probably their wide mouth appearance but they are great under certain conditions. First they should be 10-20lbs in size max, bigger cats tend to scavenge whatever the fuck and are less predatory. Second they are better from deeper, salty waters. Basically you don't want a fat neckbeard fish thats been wallowing in 3ft of water eating mud and decaying crap.
Yes catfish farm raised in the US is fine.Dont buy Tilapia otr that Viet stuff. You are eating their sewet cleaning animals. Enjoy your heavy metals too.
Just moved to TN and had catfish for the first timeAbsolutely great
>>12469552Hoo boy, dat ere catfish! Dat's some mighty fine eats down hyar in da soufth.
>>12469541I enjoy the taste of catfish but don't buy it often.
>>12470048IPS master race
>>12469541/deenz/ boys get in here right now
>>12469541Channel cat isn't really worth a shit, but blues and flatheads are excellent eating. Tbh I'd rather eat a walleye or crappy.
>>12469541Yes, and they'll stay that way as long as nobody blogs about it. Nothing's sacred when it comes to selling "trendy" shit at twelve times its original price. t. bitter, bitter offalfag
>>12471599i think this one will remain safe. zoomers and hipsters generally are of the mindset "ewwww fish smelly gross!" and since its traditionally deep fried it won't become some fitness trend either
>>12471461Get some of that mustard sauce and I'm in
>>12469541catfish is disgusting
>>12469541Depends on where you live. River striper and ocean rockfish are both very good. Steelhead is also good and so is trout. Bacalhau is fucking dank but I don't know much about cod populations.
>tfw you have to poison innocent people with swai every day at work
>>12469541for me it's pangasius
>>12469541Are you really tasting the catfish or just the deep fried and heavily seasoned catfish.
>>12469541STEP ASIDE FOR CARP. Cheap as shit here and also an invasive species so you're doing good for the environment by eating them.
Stuffed flatfish is an equally cheap, great dish depending on your geographic location.
>>12473247Great high energy breakfast in congee with some scallions
>>12473277Fried and serve with fries.
>>12473283Red braise with tofu. Carp flesh is tender and soft, also soaks up flavors well.
For me it's Herring?
>>12471468Channels are fine they're actually closely related to Blues but just don't get as big.
>>12473290Steam it for extreme tenderness.
>>12473290please tell me more about this
>>12469541>best tastingNo.>least expensiveMaybe.
>>12473277>sliced-carp-fish-congee.jpgThe only thing I hate is that it usually has very tiny bone fragments in it. Not a ideal breakfast to me.
>>12473305>The basic red braise base is soy sauce, Chinese rice wine (Shaoxing wine, huangjiu etc.) and rock sugar. Five-spice powder are crucial elements in these dishes but are used in moderation so that their flavors do not overwhelm the main ingredients. Soy sauce (usually a mix of light and dark soy sauce), fermented bean paste, red fermented tofu or rock sugar is commonly used to give an appetising flavor and reddish brown hue to the items being cooked. You use it to cook meats, for fish you go even lighter on the five-spice and add more ginger and scallions.
>>12471512It's never enough.
>>12473337Yeah carp is one of the bonier fish but the flesh is so soft you barely need to chew it so it's really easy to feel for the bones imoCarp is also popular in Eastern/Central Europe.
>>12469541catfish tastes muddy to me, and salmon is great for you
>>12473247Carp is insanely underrated in the states. Whenever I suggest eating one everyone turns up their nose. You just put them in clean water for at least 24 hours before cleaning and cooking and it gets rid of any real funk
>>12473292Well is it or isn't it?
>>12473382Yeah, they're very easy to clean and if you fishes more than you can eat in one go you can keep them alive in a big tub with goldfish pellets.Japanese nimono style koi, like red braising but with more sugar and no five-spice or fermented tofu/bean paste. Miso ni has fermented bean paste.
>>12473439Yamagata also has specialty which is like nimono but you use slices of the whole carp, guts and all. I imagine it only tastes good with carp especially raised for this purpose. The roe is a highlight here.
>>12473454You can make great Korean Maeun Tang with carp too
>>12473487But for me, it's the sweet and sour deep fried carp.
Catfish is gross. Bottom feeder, tastes like shit
>>12473493And my favourite rendition of that is 'squirrel fish' where they cut the carp to look like a pine cone and drizzle with sweet and sour sauce and pine nuts.
>>12473513Pretty gud bros.
>>12473527Home cooking rendition
>>12473382You could also leave it in milk or wine raw onions to get rid of the funkiness. The only shitty thing about carp is the amount of bones it has. But luckily the meat is a sponge for flavor
>>12473531This. But I feel it's worth it for how easy they are to catch and how cheap they are, especially given their taste.
>>12469541WHAT'S THE GREEN !!
>>12473373Given how hunchbacked that thing looks, I'd say it's a bronze bream, not a carp.
>>12471468>I'd rather eat a walleyeYou and anybody else that's had a walleye.>I'd rather eat a Ribeye Steak than a bean burgerCatfish is good but c'mon.
>>12472688Are you stupid? Do you not see how obsessed with sushi zoomers and hipsters are?
>>12473302That's not a carp, faggot
>>12469541but it tastes like dirt
>>12469541Mackerel or Carp by far for meas for seafood generally - whelks and cockles
>>12474299Are you stupid? No one eats fucking catfish sushi.
>>12474413You are so retarded that it hurts. The post I was replying said zoomers and hipsters don't like fish because it's slimy. It didn't say catfish. Holy shit just kill yourself already
Fuck, now I want a Hot Fish. Fried catfish or whiting (cornmeal crust), white bread, hot sauce, mustard raw onion, and pickle.
>>12474413>He's never had catfish sushi
Told my GF to buy some bads and she came back with fucking basa caught in Vietnam and I hit her with them imagine willingly ingesting sewage eating bottom feeders
For me, it’s Chilean sea bass
>>12471441Wtf is IPS
