Crunchy catfish nuggets that can be served as hors d'oeuvres. These were a special hit with my 3 year old who loved the fact that she could eat them like finger food. You may want to adjust the seasoning - my daughter is used to spicy stuff! These have the great taste of fried fish without the grease.

  1. In a small bowl, mix dry bread crumbs and lemon pepper. Place egg substitute in a separate small bowl. Dip catfish pieces in the egg substitute, then into the bread crumb mixture to coat.
  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Place coated catfish pieces in the hot oil. Fry on both sides until lightly browned and fish is easily flaked with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

I've made these several times. The first time I followed the recipe exactly. Good, but need more flavor. I use panko breadcrumbs, 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, and about 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. These are much better with the added spices to me. Thanks for the idea!


A good recipe. Did indeed have some crunch, but not a lot of flavor. Simple, but not bad.


Fish was very crunchy. Needed a little bit more flavor added to it. Otherwise, a pretty good recipe. If I try it again, I will probably bake it in the oven since I very rarely fry anything in my house.
