    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    The egg whites keep the moisture in the fish, I strongly suggest to serve this with creamy lemon sauce (recipe below) it is what makes this extra special and the sauce takes only minutes to make, it can be made up to 1 day ahead if desired, using low-fat sour cream for the sauce will reduce the some of the fat content, using fat-free sour cream it will make it almost totally fat-free, although I have never used fat-free sour cream I cannot say it will be okay, you can of coarse use full-fat sour cream if you wish! Adjust the cayenne pepper to taste.

      Very easy to prepare; I probably will use more spices next time because I like really tangy catfish. Nice balance between the batter and the fish. I used fat free sour cream for the sauce--very nice. This would make a really good po-boy using the sauce as dressing. I have one filet left and will try that.
