Absolutely a wonderful recipe! I didn't have butter flavored salt so I used sea salt and used it when letting the catfish fillets soak in the milk. I let the fillets soak for 10 minutes on one side and 10 minutes on the other while my oil was heating in my deep fryer. I will be keeping this recipe for future use. I want to try some trout that we catch at the lake with this recipe. Gives a nice crispy crunch! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

We really enjoyed this, in fact my DH took the leftovers to work and shared them. Everyone enjoyed. The only thing is it was just a bit too crunchy for us, so next time when I make it I will cut back on the cornmeal. We used it on bluegills. Thanks for posting.

I didn`t know how long to soak the fish because it`s noy stated. So I just dipped it in. I used whole fillets. This recipe leave a lot of dry ingredients left over. Maybe if you cut the fish into bite size pieces you would use all the ingredients. I did kick up the spices quite a bit. Used Old Bay too. I didn`t have any butter flavored salt and didn`t miss it. But all in all these were good and easy. After frying I season with coarse salt, lemon and parsley.
