Is catfish white when cooked?

Asked: Scott, Last Updated:

Fresh catfish meat is white to off-white, sometimes pinkish, with noticeable translucency and iridescence. Cooked meat is opaque and white. Don't buy it if it is reddish or slightly yellow. Also, don't expect it to have the oceany odor of marine fish; uncooked catfish smells almost like raw chicken.
