A great way to cook fresh fish fillets. Also works well with whole small fish like garfish or bream. Serve with rice and a salad.
Broiled instead of frying in margarine and it was terrific! Use fairly thick fillets and broil about 6-8 inches from element. Remove when golden brown& check for flakiness. Great recipe! - 12 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was sooo good, flakey and moist! Very simple. I can only imagine that the person who burned it had the temp up way too high as I had, if anything, too much margarine. I can give one note, I bought "pre marinated" lemon pepp. catfish from the local Raleys (always very fresh there). I also added just a pinch of salt to the flour mixture. I would DEFINITELY serve this to my in-laws..and that's sayin' something! Thanks Hallie! P.s...this was my fist catfish..2nd fish! - 06 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Okay, tasty catfish, but, heavens, I can't see the need for *4* eggs. One was plenty for the 2lbs of catfish nuggets I used. And had leftover breading as well. I would decrease the breading and probably up the cornmeal ratio also. Used a mixture of butter and oil for frying. Fried up nice and quick and browned easily. Good fish! - 22 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
