I used stone ground mustard and black pepper and cayenne pepper. Who would have thought that mustard would taste good on fish? But it tasted succulent and not much like mustard at all. My wife was skeptical when I told her about the mustard but she liked it. Read More

My kids really liked this dish! I did add some salt and garlic powder to the pepper for more flavor. The mustard didn't bring too much to the party except for a way to make the spices stick which they would have done regardless. Maybe next time I will use a grainy mustard. Very fast and easy for a 'WHATS FOR DINNER MOM" night! Thanks Girly this is a keeper:) Read More

I had never made catfish before so I was a bit nervous but it came out really well. Instead of pepper I used creole seasoning. My boyfreind can be a picky eater and he's a great cook and he said that it's the best he ever had!!!!! Read More
