Most butchers will remove the backbone for you. 

Catfish's slightly sweet flavor is a great foil for some spice and this blackening spice definitely has a kick.

Fried shrimp, coated with puffy Japanese panko crumbs? One of the world's great crunchy treats, to be sure! 

Spoon the hot foaming butter over the fillets until the inside of the fish begins to flake, the exterior has turned evenly golden, and the butter has browned.
