I don't know how original this is, but my husband loves it. It is full of flavor. We serve it with a baked sweet potatoe and sauteed spinach and garlic.

The taste was great! I ended up having to drain them on paper towels though because it was a tad greasy but it was a great alternative to frying!

I have never made catfish and this recipe was perfect! I went a little overboard with the Italian dressing but the fish was perfect!

I used raspberry vinegarette instead of Italian dressing and cornmeal instead of breadcrumbs and it was great.
