    Barb Gertz's Note:

    This recipe is for people who like catfish and spicy foods. I haven't made as we don't care for this much hot spices. Though we do really like catfish. The tartar sauce can be made 2 days a head and chilled. recipe comes from another site.

      This was absolutely delicious! We could not quit eating it. I doubled the recipe and we ate until it was all gone. I will be making this one again. It is a keeper. I am really sorry that I am late on this review. I think that I am about 2 weeks late but I am so happy that I made it. I do have to say that the next time I will cut the salt a little. It wasn't too salty but it made us really thirsty afterwards. This is excellent. Thank you for posting it.

      Ohhhh, the suffering, the waiting, the humiliation of drooling all while standing in front of my fry daddy.

      I'm not a huge fish fan, but this was so good! I accidentally used Old Cape Cod seasoning instead of Cajun in the batter, but it was plenty flavorful. The tartar sauce was amazing! I made it with Squash relish that I had canned last year and left out the lemon juice and capers since I didn't have any. We both loved it! Thanks!
