Bb King's Catfish Nuggets & Sauce

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by By The Lake

I'm not real sure how I came about this recipe, but I think I was watching the Food Network and someone there was visiting BB King's place in Memphis, TN. I had to listen really hard and this is what I came up with. This sauce is to die for! We make it everytime I fry catfish and there is never any left over. We even use this recipe for our fish tacos. Serve with a nice cole slaw. YUM!
