I thought it was interesting. The first batch came out soggy but the second batch came out crunchy and I liked that one better. I would like a less sweet/sour sauce with it. Read More

Extremely bland and boring. I ended up with lots of lemon juice and more salt and pepper on it. Read More

alot of quick recipes are not great but this one was quick and delicious! As for the oyster sauce - use enough to coat the filets on one side. Great! Read More

I used catfish nuggets and they were great. It's a nicely textured white fish with a mild take on the flavor of a sauce nature to it. Don't tell anyone I said so but I like them cold from the fridge as leftovers. The oyster sauce was a nice break from the bottled cajun sauce I usually use. It's too easy to saute them after marinading if desired. Read More

Very tasty. I had never considered coating catfish fillets with oyster sauce until this recipe. My dip coating was McCormick Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix as I had insufficient flour. Really really REALLY tasty. Thanks. Read More

Delicious and simple though may be bland for some so either add some seasoning or serve it with something spicy like a home-made salsa rice or veggie dish. Read More
