I really enjoyed this fish. I'm not a fan of catfish, so I substituted rockfish, which has a similar texture but a milder flavor. This was an easy recipe to make, and looked very nice on the plate. I didn't have any cornflakes, so I used corn chex instead, which really worked well, both for the flavor and the crunchiness of the coating. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
