Cajun-Style Fillet of Catfish with Spicy Butter Sauce

This works well with Talipia also. I didn't have bread to make fresh crumbs from once and used packaged crumbs but I much prefer the fresh crumbs. If you don't have fresh herbs, use half the amounts listed of dried herbs (but fresh is best).

    best ever.Just cut back on the lemonpepper as too much overwellms the all over taste.I used basa as it is a type of catfish and it was great.You could serve this to company and they would think that you had gone to a lot of trouble to make it.

    Thanks for posting this recipe. I needed to reduce the butter, so I used only 1 TBL per fillet. It was still very good. Also, I didn't have fresh bread crumbs, so I used the canned type for seafood, no harm, but fresh would have been better.
