"The texture of the fish was great but we found it too salty - next time I will use fine breadcrumbs instead of saltines or perhaps garlic powder and celery seed rather than garlic salt and celery salt."

"I have made this recipe several times. It is a favorite of my family. Normally, catfish taste like eating sand. This recipe is refreshing and a keeper!"
