1/2 Photos of Catfish Poppers With Spicy Dipping Sauce
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.
