My husband & I both felt it was good enough to make again, but needed more flavor. Will try Paul Prudommes Seafood Seasoning in it next time. We used fresh wild caught catfish and would like to try a different fish sometime. Delicious with the caper sauce.
Mini Catfish Cakes
Make the catfish mixture up to one day ahead before forming into patties, if desired. Find panko on the Asian product aisle of your supermarket.
