“I make this meal on a monthly basis,” writes Barbara Keith from Faucett, MIssouri. “The fish is so delicious and flaky, and it’s easy to prepare, too.” If you can’t find catfish, purchase orange roughy or cod instead.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2011

"I made some adjustments to the recipe, I used salt, pepper, and garlic powder. It was much more flavorful."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 12, 2010

"This was okay. Not overly flavorful. I'm not used to frying fish, and now I see how it does eliminate the overly powerful "fishy" taste that usually results from baking it. I ate it with hot sauce and that of course gave it some flavor."
