      Delicious recipe, tasted great on tilapia. Instead of adding salt to the wet mixture, I put normal salt in the dry mixture, while omitting the celery salt altogether. Also, I didn't have paprika so used cayenne instead. I prefer baked fish to fried, so I baked the tilapia fillets at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. I'll use this recipe again.

      This was really good!! My fish came out nice and brown and so juicy and tender!! I think it could you more of the garlic powder. I couldn't taste it in mine. I used a True Cod Filet. I will use this recipe again. Thanks for posting!! Made for PAC Spring '09

      I altered this a little. I added in some lemon/herb seasoning, garlic, and lemon pepper to the cornmeal. The catfish come out just as good as store bought or restaurant bought. Good recipe. First time I used it, I wasn't sure about using paper towels, thinking they would stick to them and it would be a mess, but it wasn't at all. We love this quick and easy recipe and use it all the time!
