Charlie's Catfish Stew

Linda Griffith


This recipe brings back so many memories of when I was a child. My dad would go fishing and bring home a mess of catfish and make this stew. It is so good and comforting...I hope you will enjoy this. Make some hush puppies or fried corn bread patties to go with it...ummmm
