      Not bad. I used catfish fillets and it turned out pretty good. The flavor was a bit bland but the texture was exceptional. We do a lot of fish fries in the summer so I was kinda looking for something I could experiment with. This gave me a few more ideas for next summer. Our usual deep-fried catfish is great but this was a new perspective, crisp, thick crust, crunchy, textured, but not very flavorful. Instead of these spices think I'll probably grind the pine nuts for our usual fish-fry recipe where we use an egg bath before the dredging and deep-frying.<br/>The advice on chopping helped a good bit - less processing - go for the crunch if you think you'd like it.

      This is an excellent way to fry fish. Had some lovely catfish fillets and used those. Just as Bergy said, you have to be very careful when grinding the pine nuts. I think I will invest in one of the old time choppers that you hit on top so you can control the final size of whatever you are chopping. Thnx for posting Mar-Bear, we'll have this again.

      The cornflour, pine nuts & spices make a delightful crisp crust that compliments the fish. I only used 1 tbsp of oil in the pan to fry the fish. Be careful when you grind your pinenuts - if you grind them too fine they will turn into a paste. Thanks for posting this lovely recipeChef#220420 mar-mar
