wow! Fantastic fried catfish nuggets!, Member RosemaryThomas

I really loved this recipe because my husband does not like his catfish fried with cornmeal. I always use flour. So for both of us, I can only say this recipe is definitely a keeper for now on. I have been telling all of our friends about this one. Thanks again!!
