Fish Can Be "Delish" Every Friday
(NAPSA) - For a delicious change to your usual Friday fish meal, combine ingredients you probably have on hand with a mild-flavored fish.
Fish is a staple of the Lenten season, but many parents struggle to excite their children about Friday night's fish.
This year, serve the family mild-flavored, versatile fish dishes that are healthy, easy to prepare, and popular with grown-ups and kids alike.
Grill it, fry it, broil it, bake it-the mild taste and firm texture of U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish makes it suitable for a wide array of flavor applications and cooking methods.
Because of its versatility, families could create a new dish with U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish every Friday during Lent and never realize they were eating the same fish.
Even busy families have time for Cheesy Catfish, which takes about 20 minutes to prepare.
An excellent source of protein, catfish also is low in calories, carbohydrates, and saturated fat, perfect for keeping your family happy and healthy.
