Kerr Lake Catfish Stew
This Kerr Lake Catfish Stew recipe takes me back to camping trips I enjoyed with my cousins. We would spend the day on the lake, swimming and fishing. When we’d get back to the campsite, we would cook a communal meal using the fish we caught that day – usually that was catfish. Catfish is very popular in in the Southern United States.
It’s generally dipped in batter and fried but I think this recipe is great for showcasing the mild flavour and firm texture of freshly caught catfish. This is a one-pot stew which means it’s as easy to cook over a campfire as it is in your kitchen. You simply fry some bacon in a pot and add some tomatoes, potatoes, seasoning and of course the catfish! To me, there is nothing better than a hearty stew after an activity-filled day on the lake.
