I used more onion and 8 tablespoons hot sauce for 4 fillets catfish and it worked great!! Makes a really good and spicy sauce and the coating on the fish is good and crispy!!
We made this for dinner a few nights ago and to tasted great. We doubled the sauce amount and it still wasn't quite enough so next time we might triple it. Makes great sauce. Update: I just noticed that the amount of hot sauce in the recipe is different from what we used. I think it originally had 2 tablespoons? So tripling 5 tablespoons as the recipe says now might be too much but I bet you could have a total of about 7 or 8 and the sauce would be fine. Experiment to see how you like it.
My dh loves catfish and he said this was some of the best he's ever had. I did not make the sauce as dh is a purist and only likes lemon juice on fish. My biggest problem was that I did not cook it quite long enough and had to put it back for a little more time. I will definitly make this for him again.
What a combination. The whole family kept popping in the kitchen to see if they were done, mouths watering. Next time I'll double; 3 hungry men I hardly got a taste.
This is a really flavorful and different take on catfish -- just what I was looking for! The idea of so much hot pepper sauce put me off though, so I used a mixture of Frank's Red Hot Wings Buffalo Sauce (medium heat) and a regular bar-b-que sauce after sauteing the onion and garlic. I also increased the amounts quite a bit to spread it thickly on the fish. Very good, and still plenty of spicy heat, in fact, I can't imagine that we could have eaten it with straight hot pepper sauce! The blue cheese dressing was a great complement. We will definitely have this again!
Very good...not difficult!
Fantastic recipe. I have made it three times already and each time it gets great reviews. Thank You
I tried it last night and I and my husband absolutely loved it. By far the tastiest catfish recipe I have tried.
My dh and I loved this recipe. It was spicy, but not overwhelming. The spices in the crust complemented the hot sauce well. Only changes I made were to omit the onion, increase the garlic to three small cloves, and used 7 T. of hot sauce. Thanks for a great recipe.
This is a great recipe.
