The state of Mississippi leads the country in catfish production – the leading aquaculture industry in the nation – so it's no surprise that this moist, sweet and mild fish makes an appearance between slices of bread across the state. At most Mississippi catfish joints, the fish is battered, fried and served as a po'boy on a hoagie or flaky French bread, but it can also come blacked or grilled, often with cajun seasoning.
