I'm the same as you on catfish Hubby loves any kind of fish and seafood and will eat catfish, but it's wayyyy too strong for me. Hopefully the more milder flavored fish can be purchased in the supermarkets? And I don't mean the Gorton's, etc frozen fish, but fresh in the meat section?

We belong to Costco, and I know there's one in both Nashville and Knoxville, and we're used to monthly trips there to stock up, so that practice will be continued. I know they've got fresh fish there.

blessings, Shen

Most of the larger supermarkets here have a seafood section with a variety of fish. And there are restaurants that serve other things besides catfish, although catfish is the favorite of "fish fries" and mom-and-pop restaurants.

And yes, we have Costco. I pass one everyday on my way home.

I wish there was a Costco in Knoxville, but there isn't. There's just Sam's Club. The only Costco locations in Tennessee are in Memphis and Nashville. I like Costco a whole lot more than Sam's Club.

Funny, I never considered catfish strong at all. I guess it's what you grow up with!

Do you have Best Buys there? Some people here like those better than Sam's. I've never been that fond of Sam's myself.

Lou said that it's good if it's done right - so, I'll have to try it again. The one time I tried it, it was very strong tasting, and I just can't stand that in fish.
There's a chain restaurant nearby that we go to, and he gets catfish all the time there, while I order steak. He says they have real good catfish. So, I'll taste his next time we go there.

We do have a Best Buy in Knoxville. It's clear on the other side of town so I hardly ever go. But I do like it.

You can get cod and haddock at Kroger's. Sometimes, it is fresh. You can always get it frozen and it is good. I've learned to fry my own fish. It's been great.

Interestingly, Litton's in Knoxville, a local restaurant, has fried scrod and scallops.

And of course, I now know where to find pierogies.

By the way, Fresh Market, which is a supermarket in Knoxville and I believe other locations, will get you VERY fresh northeast fish, as well as pierogies shipped in from Chicago. I am not fond of them though, since they have orange peel in them. Too sweet. They MAY have fresh kielbasa. I wouldn't be surprised if they do.

But Fresh Market will get you what you need.

It took some doing, but I now have all my favorite foods, except for clam fritters. I've kind of given up on those. But you know what? I don't need to eat those. I look at a clam fritter and gain ten pounds!

Thanks for the info! Hopefully there'll be a Fresh Market near the locale we'll be relocating to. i've never tried clam fritters, altho, I do like fried clams. I've got a couple cans of clams in my cupboard, planning on doing a linguini and clams dinner sometime soon.

blessings, Shen

There aren't that many Fresh Markets in Tennessee, unfortunately. Just Chattanooga, Knoxville, Memphis, and Nashville (Brentwood). It's a very high-end supermarket (hardwood floors, classical music playing in the background, etc.). But as hiknapster said, Kroger is very good at having a huge seafood section with fresh fish flown in from all over the place.
