Bacon Crumbled Catfish Filets


This is a meal you can have ready literally in about 20 minutes! It’s healthy and delicious, and you can serve with it your favorite salsa, fruit or topping. Catfish is a ‘sturdy’ fish filet to fry in a skillet; it doesn’t shred apart like some white fish does. Mild and tender, it’s really good with the mango-peach salsa.
