I've used this recipe for catfish for years and it's one of my very favorites! I use plain nonfat yogurt to brush on the fish, and if it isn't fresh corn season or if I'm in a hurry, I've used canned Mexicorn (without the butter and water) for the relish. Thanks for posting!

Outstanding recipe. A very nice change from fish with tartar sauce or lemon sauce. I used buttermilk for the marinade, and Louisiana Fish Fry mix for the cornmeal (it's a combination of cornmeal and cornstarch). I made the relish as written using frozen corn. The only thing I will do different next time is eliminate the half and half so there is nothing "runny" in the relish when we put it on the fish. DH said this was the best meal he's had so far on the World Tour.

Great recipe. To marinate the fish is a great idea. It add the right flavour to the fish (I used buttermilk). And the crust was wonderful in two ways: (1) crispy texture (2) it keeps the fish moist. The relish was very easy to make (I used canned corn). Fish and relish together were not only a very colourful combination, but also very tasty. A fish recipe just after my fancy: easy to make, full of flavour and the fish melt in your mouth.
