Broiled instead of frying in margarine and it was terrific! Use fairly thick fillets and broil about 6-8 inches from element. Remove when golden brown& check for flakiness. Great recipe!

Good---made a few days ago with SCI hushpuppies. I used oil instead of margarine to fry, and I used less flour and more cornmeal + some Italian style bread crumbs. Very close to my fried catfish...
