    I chose to make a rue with the flour and butter and then add the milk. You need to whisk this pretty well. I added the catfish to the same pan, which is oven safe. I omitted the green onions and changed the garlic salt to garlic powder. Yummy! - 2/10/10

    Very good recipe -- thank you! I used organic nonfat milk and probably needed to add a bit more flower, since the sauce was thin (but yummy!). May try mixing with some nonfat yogurt in the future. Very nice to find a yummy non-fry non-cajun option for catfish! - 5/26/09

    My family said they liked this but I thought it was a little bland. I think I would maybe add more salt the next time plus maybe some low fat cheese. - 10/31/13

    Recipe was easy and the coating was good, but I guess I've learned I don't care for catfish! I didn't like the consistency. - 2/5/13
