"Easy and delicious baked catfish. The key is to marinate the filets overnight."

Great tasting recipe! Just a couple of things, though: the amount of breading is enough for three preparations of this recipe (this isn't a guess, I actually used it three times ... I divided it up before I breaded the fish, 'cause you don't want to use breading that's touched the fish, obviously). I kept the extra breading in the fridge b/c of the parmesan. Also, you can use regular milk instead of evaporated, and much less melted butter than the recipe calls for (I think I used 1/4 cup). This recipe was great on red snapper as well! My little girls LOVE this recipe.
Didn't like this at all. I cut the butter down by half and was still too much. I felt like it tasted too fatty between the fish and butter. Didn't get crispy at all.
My husband and kids really loved the recipe. I didn't have the canned milk so I just marinated in regular milk for the day in the fridge. I also added some breadcrumbs to the top before I drizzled the butter. It was very good and easy to prepare.
Wonderful! I've never had such moist, flavorful catfish-even my kids loved it! Definitely worth the wait to marinate!
The flavor and texture are both wonderful in this easy to prepare dish. I only had time to marinate the fish about 2 hours, but it still came out juicy and tender. Husband and son raved. I did whip up a litte lemon/butter sauce to serve on top, but it really wasn't needed.
This fish was excellent. I marinated my fish in whole milk overnite and I prepared the flour mixture in a ziplock bag so that it would be easy to coat the fish. I reduced the amount of flour to about 3/4 of a cup but left the other seasonings the same because I like seaoning. There was extra mixture leftover but the fish was so good I didnt care. I did reduce the amount of butter to about 1/4 and my fish browned very nicely. HIGHLY recommend, both my husband and little girl loved it.
Very good and tasty. As stated in a previous review a lot of flour mixture was left over, so I divided it up before I used it. After baking, the coating was slightly wet, so I broiled for 8-10 minutes. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top, and use tartar sauce for dipping.
This recipe was great! I added a few dashes of Essence of Emeril to the breading after reading it could be bland. The flavor was awesome and my kids loved it! I even forgot to add the butter after breading the fish and it still tasted good! Can't wait to try it again...
