  1. Toss together bread crumbs, Cajun seasoning, and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the buttermilk. Toss the fish with the flour, shake off the excess, and dip into the egg. Shake off excess egg, and press into breadcrumb mixture. Set aside.
  2. Heat about 1/8 inch of oil in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side until the fish flakes easily and has browned nicely.



This was very tasty!! I used fat free mayo instead of the buttermilk and baked in the oven and it turned out fine. I will do this one again!! Thanks for sharing your recipe!!

Really great, easy meal, but I did greatly increase the amount of cajun seasoning. I used about two or three tablespoons.

Delicious and the batter stayed on wonderfullly! Would've given 5 stars except I increased the Cajun seasoning to 2 Tablespoons - using 1.5 t would not have been enough "Cajun" in my opinion. Wi...

Good stuff. Cooked exactly as presented here. Will need to increase the "Cajun" next time. (1T, I think) But there WILL be a next time! Thanks for sharing!!

simple way to cook fresh fish indoors, but add extra cajun seasoning. its a little bland as is

excellent...I used cracker crumbs and added 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning and 1 teaspoon salt. Perfect. My husband loved it and I can see using this recipe over and over! thanks

Made this twice now, and it turned out very tasty! Instead of cajun seasoning I used a mix of Montreal chicken spice and some other stuff I happened to find. The breading texture is wonderful! H...

Excellent. 5 stars for flavour, crunch, moistness and simplicity. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and increased the Cajun spice to 1 Tbsp. Still mild enough to taste the fish. Next...
