  1. It was great. I did add a couple of my own spices.
  2. I made this exactly like the recipe and will make it again! Crunchy a little "bite " and quick to the table!
  3. Made this and it was so quick and easy. I would enhance the seasoning next time since we like spicy food but this was a keeper.
  4. My family is catfish K RAZY!! THIS just adds to their love for this muddy buddy! The only thing this dish needs is salt n pepper. Perfect otherwise.
  5. Very good! This one is a keeper.
