I'm in a blog slump. Lack of motivation and a busy schedule are the main reasons, but I also felt like I just needed a break. And for the first time in a long time, I'm not worried about tumbling stats and slow traffic. That's progress, huh?
So I'm only popping in quickly with a Mardi Gras recipe for Pecan-crusted Catfish. Really, I could completely bypass the fish and just eats spoonfuls of the accompanying Cajun-spiced Pecan Compound Butter, which would actually be appropriate on a day named Fat Tuesday. But all in all, this recipe is actually fairly figure-friendly (so long as you don't go crazy with the butter), since it's baked rather than fried.
What I learned as a result of this recipe is that there are two camps when it comes to catfish: you either love it or you hate it. If you hate it, halibut would make a fantastic substitution. Or you could drown the catfish in so much butter you don't taste it. Okay, okay...enough about the butter...
Happy Fat Tuesday...indulge while you can!
