Flavorful Catfish Fillets Recipe

"This is the best catfish ever!" applauds Ellen De Munnik of Chesterfield, Michigan. "It's fast to prepare...and the cayenne adds a little zip," Her golden cornmeal and herb coating keeps the fillets moist and gives them traditional appeal without the fat that comes from frying.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
