This was excellent and easy. The quinoa sauté made the dish. I used more garlic and jalapeño. Next time I will use an orange bell pepper for more color. Served with lime slices instead of lemons.

I used tilapia and lemon pepper seasoning. I my have cooked it too long in an effort to brown the cornmeal. I like the idea of using less oil for fying, next time I'll try with catfish. the quinoa was delicious and went well with the fish, I also made an added side of CL Wilted Cabbage with Cumin; great meal.

We really enjoyed this dish! I added cayenne pepper to the cornmeal before frying it and added 2 jalapeños only because we like things a bit more spicy than the average person. Would definitely make again. The fresh ingredients make it!

This was amazing! Simple to prepare and delicious. I didn't make any modifications to the recipe, which is rare for us.

I really liked the catfish, but I thought the quinoa was kind of bland. I would have liked more flavor to it.

Although the quinoa mixture was interesting, the fish itself was not. Very, very bland, and for some reason not crispy. i would not make this again. CL's Bayou Catfish Fillets is much easier and much tastier.
