  • Gas Station Catfish -- YUMMY!!!!

    OK, so I love seafood, and sometimes I just want a fish sandwich or something when I'm traveling. Pretty tired of burgers.

    Long John Silvers has a fairly decent fish sandwich, but there aren't many LJS's around.

    (And, from that link - Restaurant Offers Free Classic Whitefish on National Talk Like a Pirate Day)

    So, this morning, I stopped for gas on the way to work ($2.07), and noticed that they had catfish at their little food center. It actually looked like a nice piece of catfish, so I bought a 2 piece "fish and a biscuit".

    Wow -- it was EXCELLENT. Thin battered, crispy, fish was flaky and WHITE, no black lines or veins....

    I USED to enjoy an occasional "gas station pizza", but ... wow... I gotta try their chicken next time.

    There is a gas station near my in-laws owned by an elderly Pakistani couple. The wife runs the food center and makes the BEST chicken strips I've ever eaten. And they are a reasonable price too!

      As opposed to unreasonable chicken strips?

        Maybe it's the gasoline they fry the catfish in!

            Not all chicken strips can be reasoned with, and it takes a particular talent from the reasoner!

              That's how you know it's authentic.
              "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." ― C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)

                Incidentally, is Casey's General Store pizza any good?

                      I should know better than to ask.

                        Catfish is one of those things that you can do well, or completely horribly.

                            And it's not really good unless it's hot and fresh.

                              I remember the first time I went fishing for catfish, then had to clean them. We chopped off their heads, then gutted them and skinned them, then watched as the fish body just wiggled back and forth on it own before we filleted them. Weird.

                              But after breading and pan frying them, they were delicious!
