    By The Lake's Note:

    I'm not real sure how I came about this recipe, but I think I was watching the Food Network and someone there was visiting BB King's place in Memphis, TN. I had to listen really hard and this is what I came up with. This sauce is to die for! We make it everytime I fry catfish and there is never any left over. We even use this recipe for our fish tacos. Serve with a nice cole slaw. YUM!

      I was looking for a really good catfish recipe and I think I found it. It was easy to make and tastes delish! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2009.

      Really, really good. I don't normally like to deep fry, but this recipe was a wonderful exception to the rule! My one sister and I loved the sauce! Had some leftovers for lunch the next day! Just heated up in the oven to renew the crispiness. Will have again, as our market has nuggets on sale all the time! Thnx for posting, By The Lake.
