This was very good! I won't say my kids loved it but my husband and I did. Afer reading other reviews I did the following: I made sure the fish weren't crowded in the pan. I used a shallow pan and I cooked it in a 375 degree convection oven for 30 minutes. It came out crispy on the outside and just right on the inside. Read More

The idea was good, but the catfish turned out a little bland and mushy. I ended up turning the oven on to broil to crisp up the crust. The fish would have turned out better if the fish was fried instead of baked. If I make it again I will definitely need to add more seasoning and use bread crumbs instead of flour. I use the same ingredients, substitute the flour for breadcrumbs, on chicken breast. It is really good. The breadcrumbs give the fish or chicken a crispier crust than the flour does. Read More

I was a little hesitant to make this recipe but I'm so glad I did. I made a few changes. I seasoned the catfish with a bit of salt garlic and black pepper before dipping into the egg. For the flour/cheese mixture I didn't use any flour at all I subsituted the flour with seasoned bread crumbs and I added cayenne pepper to the mixture. I baked it in the oven for about 35 minutes then put it in the broiler for another 5 minutes for crispiness. Once crispy I spread some shredded cheddar cheese on top of the filets and left it in the oven(not broiler again) for a couple of minutes until the cheddar was melted. It was perfect!! My husband had seconds and leftovers for lunch the next day. He said this is one of his favorites now. Thanks!!! Read More

I also added garlic and cayenne to the dredging mixture and had to bake the fish for 25-30 minutes. Everyone raved and it was welcomed as a new catfish recipe for the family! Read More

This recipe was great. I took other suggestions and used tilapia and baked at it at 375 for 30 minutes. I also substituted half of the flour for breadcrumbs. It was a big hit! Read More

This was really the best I did as everyone said and used seasoned bread crumbs instead of the flour and it was delicious! In addition i allowd the filets to marinade in a mixture of blended chive a bit of garlic pepper and lemon juice before dipping it in the egg mixture and. I also used cheddar and not parmesan and allowed it to bake for 30 minutes and it tasted great. However next time I will dip the fish in egg first then flour then egg and breadcrumbs. In that way I'll get more to stick to the fish. Read More

I used catfish nuggets and it turned out great! I didn't use all of the cheese mixture it kept great in a ziplock bag in the freezer until the next time I made this. My husband even liked it and he's doesn't usually like fish very much. Read More

The fish turned out too bland and I didn't like that it wasn't at all crispy on the outside. It needs longer time in the oven and bread crumbs coating instead of flour. I probably won't cook it again. I was dissapointed. Read More

This recipe truly is simple to make and is very delicious. My family loved it children included! I experimented and substituted about 1/4 tsp or a little more of Old Bay seasoning and some garlic powder for the salt and pepper. I will definitely use this recipe again! Read More
