      I have used this recipe for years! My only modification is that I use 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper instead of the 1 teaspoon red pepper. Also, because where we live in SE Texas, we are usually cooking fresh catfish, I soak the fish in buttermilk about 30 minutes before frying. This method may be used for catfish filets or frying whole, pansized catfish. Yummy!

      This recipe was easy & delicious. I have never eaten or prepared catfish before, but I was impressed with this recipe. *** I dipped in milk first.
