    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    These little appetizers are so good! We really loved the dipping sauce and I can't wait to try it with some shrimp and scallops also. If you can't find the panko, feel free to use plain breadcrumbs as I did. Recipe is from Southern Living April 2006.

      I'm skipping the star rating because I don't think this is a bad recipe - it just wasn't to our taste. Although the fish was moist, it turned out bland (not spicy at all, and the breading really didn't have a flavor) - perhaps it was because I used tilapia instead of catfish? Or maybe it was the panko crumbs? We also found the sauce way too mayonnaise-y. We won't be having this again, but thanks anyway for sharing! :)

      These were amazing. I don't usually get excited about a recipe and tried this one because it sounded interesting and I had some extra catfish. This was great. I wouldn't change a thing. You could easily substitute any white flaky fish in the recipe and it would work great. Thank for a wonderful recipe. I can't wait to make these for friends.
