This makes a great lightly seasoned crispy coating for catfish (or other fish) using Rice Krispies (or other crisp rice cereal).

This is great!! I like this coating for catfish because it is not overly corn meal tasting like some. It has nice balance of flavor and texture. Thanks for this delicious recipe!
