    Big John's Note:

    My friends in N'awlins inform me that "river cat" is better then the farmed fish so do try to get it if you can so they won't use the doll that looks like me.

      This is a very tasty way to make catfish! I really enjoyed the flavors, however I think I will add just a bit more spices next time I make it. I think I would have enjoyed a bit more of the last few spices. The cayenne really adds a wonderful taste to the coating. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. I will be making this again in the future :-)
