    ~SarahBeth~'s Note:

    Adapted from a Southern Living recipe. I like these since I get to eat fried catfish -- which I LOVE and I get to not feel guilty about it!!! Be careful adding more salt if your cajun seasoning is really salty.

      Love this recipe. I have always liked the cornmeal breading on fish. I used tilapia and made a homemade salsa with coleslaw and homemade chips. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.
