This recipe will give you 8 catfish cakes but can be easily doubled and cod fish may be used in place of the catfish or use a mixture of each. You can bake the fish fillets up to a day in advance and refrigerate until ready to use for this recipe, also you can prepare and shape the catfish cakes (omitting the flour) cover and chill up to a day in advance, coat in flour before frying. Prep time does not include cooking the fish firstly. These are just as delicious cold!
