  1. Place catfish in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain off water, and mash up the fish. Stir in the onion, mustard, salad dressing, Old Bay(TM), cracker crumbs and egg. Mix until evenly blended.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Form the fish mixture into patties, and fry in the hot oil. Drain on paper towels, and serve hot.

Excellent! I followed the recipe exactly, except substituted Orange Roughy for Catfish. I am a HORRIBLE cook, and these turned out amazingly well. I always find a way to mess up even the simp...

I had to rate this recipe because it is hands down one of my faves. I use Keebler Onion flavored crackers instead of the plain buttery ones the recipe calls for. I just can't compliment this r...
