      This was my first time to fry catfish and it was a delicious experiment. It was so easy to make, too. For the cornbread mix, I used a Jiffy cornbread mix and it gave the fish a certain sweetness. I will be making this recipe again...many more times. Thanks for another great recipe.

      I have eaten fried catfish so many times at restaurants but never tried it on my own. Mine turned out perfectly. I also used Jiffy cornbread mix which has a slight sweetness to it. The fish was not greasy either, but had a nice crunchy coating. Thank-you. Now my husband has an excuse to go fishing. ;)

      I had a problem with the cornmeal mixture...most of it came off the fillets. I'm not quite sure what I did wrong, but am going to try this again and see if turns out differently. What did remain on the fish tasted delicious. I did have to add extra salt to the wasn't quite salty enough for us. Otherwise, a good recipe.
