This was fantastic! Had it tonight with green beans. Just used the parm out of the can and it was fine. I had a touch of breading left over, but as I only ended up having 3 huge fillets I'm not complaining. I started this thinking I had 4 of them. The only real change was that I just shaved thin slices of cold butter and put those on top of the fish... this method meant I used only 2 T total. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will try turning on the broiler the last couple of minutes to crisp this up, but really the flavor was great as is. Thanks for a great catfish recipe that even my kids ate... and I haven't been able to say that about the 17 mo in a while.

My husband loves his fried catfish and was skeptical when I said I would be baking the fish instead. This came out surprisingly crunchy with a good flavor. I chose to add a little cayenne and garlic. We both loved it and it satisfied my husband's want for fried catfish, he has asked for it again. Dec. 28, 2005.
