CatDaddy, owner of CatDaddy's Catfishin' Adventures, has made a career out of fishing and guiding for catfish. He has also likely cleaned, cooked and eaten more catfish than anyone in the country. If you're all about keeping your catch and eating it, CatDaddy has some recommendations on delicious ways to do just that. Certainly the most popular method of cooking catfish is to fry it, and you can really never go wrong with this method. He says oven cooked and grilled are great too. However, if you are looking for a super simple and quick way to use your catfish fillets, CatDaddy says he can't get enough of catfish soup. You don't need to be Bobby Flay to whip up this satisfying soup and you don't even need a stove. CatDaddy says to start by pouring two cans of store bought chicken noodle soup in a large microwavable bowl. Then chop an onion and a jalapeno, add it to the bowl and microwave on high for 4 to 5 minutes or until the onions are soft and the soup is hot. While your soup is warming, cut a few catfish fillets into small pieces. Once your soup is hot, remove from the microwave and cover the top with the fillet pieces. Put a lid on the soup and put it back in the microwave for 8 to 9 minutes. CatDaddy says your fillets should start to pop a little by the end. Take your soup out of the microwave and let it sit for a few minutes and then stir it and enjoy. Cooking doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious and CatDaddy says he just can't get enough catfish soup.
