Fish skewer and French fries – detail

Alabama catfish lovers have the chance to brag about their favorite restaurant that serves this Southern specialty.

Alabama Catfish Producers, a division of the Alabama Farmers Federation, is sponsoring the Catfish Restaurant challenge to recognize delicious dishes. The contest will highlight and reward Alabama restaurants known for serving U.S. farm-raised catfish.
From the nominations, four finalists will be selected for the challenge. A team of judges, including an Alabama catfish farmer, will visit the finalists and present each restaurant owner a plaque. The judges will sample the nominated dish as part of the final round of competition.
The winner will be announced in August, which is National Catfish Month.
The contest offers more than bragging rights about great-tasting food. The winning restaurant will receive a trophy, a cash prize and be featured in Neighbors magazine. The person who nominates the winning restaurant will also receive prizes from the Alabama Catfish Producers.
Visit for a complete list of rules and the nomination form. The deadline for nominations is July 7.
