This is my go to catfish recipe. Turns out nice & crunchy (I usually spray the pan & the tops of the fish prior to baking) with a good flavor & flaky fish. I usually serve with okra/tomatoes, cheese grits, corn bread & lima beans for a good southern meal without the grease. If there are any leftovers, they go well in fish tacos.

Hands down, this is the best darned catfish we've ever eaten.
