I go to a Publix Supermarket in Bellevue. They have a separate seafood section. I don't remember exactly but it seems like there's at least a dozen kinds of fresh fish, plus clams, crab legs and whatnot.

There used to be a great seafood restaurant in Nashville called L&N, but, alas, it's no longer there. Their menu was more like what you might expect to find along the coast.

Fresh Market is a splurge, but if you really have a taste for something, it is good to know that it is there. I can't say enough about Kroger's.

And you'll start to find your stuff in the oddest places.

My husband hasn't found REAL Giardiniera Sauce in 25 years, since he left Chicago. You use it for Italian Beef. Guess what? We have it now! FOOD CITY carries it!

Funny, I saw freshwater shrimp (prawns) being harvested in Tennessee one time. I wish the people who raise them well, but I'm not sure I want to eat them after that. They're probably alright, it just struck me as somewhat "unappetizing".

Excellent sites! We have a smaller version of fish up here called a "horned pout". When I first read about catfish and how large they can get I was stunned. I think the biggest horned pout caught around where I grew up was 12" long and that was big. I have been fascinated by the subject of catfish ever since. I think we discussed on here about how big they get but I just can't wrap my head around the size. Something like an average weight of 40lbs or something? Is that right? As a matter of fact if anybody has catfish pictures I would love to see them. You can tell I"m stunned because everytime the subject comes up it's "do they really get that big". That's why I'm begging for pictures

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.
Hmm, isn't it off Cedar Bluff? If so, I think I've been there a couple times. I do love their music selections there... I need to go back to hunt for some more obscure titles...

When you come to Nashville, northcountry, come over to the lake at MetroCenter. Bring some bread. You can feed the catfish and the turtles (if you can keep the ducks away). They'll almost eat it out of your hand.

Thank you alleycat. I will be sure too! I'm just fascinated by them for some reason. I'm sure your used to them down there but we don't have a fresh water fish up here that comes anywhere close to them in size. Our Horned Pout look just like them but alot smaller. I guess the cold weather must stunt there growth. The Horned Pout though has a long protrusion on their heads (hence the name). They are incredibly sharp and you have to learn how to hold them to keep from getting stung. My sister would never take them off the hook. She would just fling them on the ground and yank the hook out of their mouths. Good for a laugh When I first tasted catfish I expected it to taste like Horned Pout but I actually found it to be a lighter, sweeter taste. Much to my surprise, I actually found fresh catfish at the supermarket this weekend. Guess what's for dinner?
