My Daddy is a threat to try to eat just about anything. He has tried rattlesnake, chitlins’, and pickled pig’s feet to name a just a few. Years ago, he decided that he would try catfish caviar. Yes, you read that right. Well, apparently it didn’t taste very good. So, he decided that it might taste better,…if he fried the little buggers. He heated up his favorite iron skillet and put his favorite grease in it . When the catfish eggs hit the hot pan, they proceeded to pop all over the kitchen. It certainly gave new meaning to fish poppers!
Friends, I didn’t eat these and since he never made them again, I’m guessing he wouldn’t recommend that you make them either. Some things, like caviar, should be eaten only when prepared by somebody who knows what they are doing! Those people might have realized that catfish eggs ain’t good eats!
