  • “Pretty tasty used olive oil.. didn’t make me feel as guilty.Would’ve use a little more cayenne pepper as I like my food with a kick.Overall nice, simple, fast dish.”

  • “Very good, loved the spiciness of it and will be making it again. I just made two fillets and used basa fish, but used the recipe amount of spices and had to use bran flakes, which had a nice nutty flavour.Thanks for posting.”

  • “Excellent flavor I didn’t have wheat flakes cereal so I mixed half cornflake crumbs & half Panko – lovely crispy crust.I had a bit ofsourcream dip left over and I lightly painted each side of the fish before dipping them in the seasoned crumbs.Enjoyed by all”

  • “This is a very good recipe for catfish. WhenI have friends over for a Catfish fry,they always ask for Cajun Potato Salad and Smothered Okra & Tomatoes as side dishes”

  • “We really liked this recipe.Very spicy!Quite delicious served with hush puppies and sliced tomatos.Cooking time given is good for 1/4″ fillets, but double time for 1/2″ fillets.”
