This recipe is so simple and quick to make, especially if the coating is made ahead and stored in the freezer.

I subbed creole spice for the lemon pepper b/c we like spicy catfish and it was great. This was so much cheaper than the tiny little packets you get at the store and simple to make. Stores really well in the freezer for a quick prep later.
