Classic maybe, however not much flavor. Seasonings go a long way including some cajun spices. Read More

This is very good and crunchy! I did add a dash or two of Emerils Essence. Make sure your catfish is dry before you coat it, and have the pan sizzling to insure a quick sear, and crusty outside. Read More

Very tasty and easy for a basic fried catfish recipe - as good, if not better, than any we've had at a restaurant! Will definitely make this again when I don't feel like spending lots of time in the kitchen... Read More

This was the best fried catfish I ever tried. I actually signed up as a member today because I wanted to express how much I enjoyed this meal! We even used the excess dry mix plus eggs and corn to make fried hush puppies to go with the catfish. It turned out great! Read More
