A lady that I work with turned me on to these. My family thinks they are just terrific. We like ours dipped in ketchup. Yummy.

We love fried catfish, so I wanted to give these catfish cakes a try. I served them for brunch along with quiche and fruit salad. I used 1 teaspoon minced garlic and a generous splash of hot sauce. The cracker crumb coating made for a crisp exterior. Yummy and something different.
