    Great dish! We loved the crust on the fish and the sauce was awesome too! I used some fresh catfish, and it can't be beat!

    I just made the fish, not the tartar sauce. It is a good way to get a "mock" fried fish!

    This is delicious fish! I used some tilapia that I had on hand and it was outstanding prepared this way. I used 3/4 tsp of cayenne and it had a great little kick. I did make the tartar sauce and it was a great accompaniment. This made a wonderful quick and easy fish dish with ingredients I always have on hand - thanks for posting the recipe!

    We love catfish and found this to be an excellent recipe for it. Penko gives it a little more crunch and substituting the milk with buttermilk gives the breading more flavor and fullness. Great recipe.
