Buffalo-Style Catfish Strips with Ranch Dressing

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

The inspiration for this dish is Buffalo chicken wings. We breaded and baked catfish strips, then drizzled them with a spicy sauce. If you don't like spicy foods, omit the hot pepper sauce.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 2 ounces fish, 1/2 celery stalk, 1/2 carrot, and 1 tablespoon dressing)
