    I added an egg white wash and used panko. Very tasty. I am going to mix up the spices next time. - 9/29/09

    My husband loved this! I used the same proportions bread crumbs to spices, and substituted Old Bay Seasoning for the cajun powder,chili powder and pepper. I loved the coating. I baked the catfish at 450 degrees for 25 minutes. (Different oven!) It was a satisfying dish! - 5/8/09

    Too spicy for the little one, but I loved it. I am always looking for good fish recipes and this one will be staying in my recipe box for future use. Will leave out the chili powder next time and maybe add some parmesan cheese. - 3/17/08

    3 stars for flavor. Fried catfish is generally finger food and this wasn't. I used cornmeal and it didn't all 'cook'. I think your nutritional value is off. Four 4oz pieces of fish (one serving?) for 170 calories isn't feasible. - 7/17/09
