This recipe came from the local Catfish Festival....yes, we can use almost anything to have a reason for a party! VERY delicious way to serve catfish!

We loved this recipe! I subbed some light sole for the catfish and baked it for only 10 minutes, but the top still got a bit crunchy. The flavor was wonderful and I know we will make this many times using a variety of fish.
