and backbone and slice into steaks. Season the slices with salt and lemon juice and
refrigerate in covered container 1 hour.

butter, and bake in 350 degree Fahrenheit oven 30-40 min. or until fully cooked. Drench
with 1/2 cup fork-blended sour cream and bake another 5 minutes. Serve with potatoes and
Note: Catfish is also very good sprinkled with fish seasoning, dredged
in flour, or breaded and fried.
