Catfish is awesome. It’s nice and meaty, flakes out nicely to spread the good bits around once cooked, and holds up very well in soups and chowders.
1 smoked ham hock
1 to 2 cups of chopped Swiss chard
2 stalks celery
2 medium sized onions
4 medium redskin potatoes
4 cups water7
1 or 2 pounds of catfish, pan fried in old bay seasoning and olive oil, cut into bite sized chunks
2 cups of clam broth
2 cans of chopped clams with juice
1 6z can crab with juice
2 small cans mushroom stems and pieces
½ bottle chardonnay wine
2 cups frozen corn
8 oz fake crab
Lots of pepper
Chop all the veggies, toss everything in the pot, bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, cook until done.
2 to 3 cups milk or powdered milk, several tablespoons of Southwestern Mills Gravy Mix added at end of cooking.
