Reviews for Mustard Fried Catfish
"I mixed the mustard and spices and let the fish marinate in it for a couple of hours. It was so flavorful! The flour cornmeal mix gave it a nice crispy coating!"
"I made some adjustments to the recipe, I used salt, pepper, and garlic powder. It was much more flavorful."
"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."
