    Timothy J Higgins Eva's Note:

    This is the favotite way to prepare catfish in the North Carolina Piedmont. The coating is spicy, making it a nice contrast to the delicate flavor of the catfish.

      Just the right balance of corn meal and flour, just the right balance of pepper and salt. Yes, this tastes just like the Salt and Pepper Catfish I've had many times in Piedmont NC. Thanks for the recipe.
