  1. Place catfish in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain off water, and mash up the fish. Stir in the onion, mustard, salad dressing, Old Bay(TM), cracker crumbs and egg. Mix until evenly blended.
  2. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Form the fish mixture into patties, and fry in the hot oil. Drain on paper towels, and serve hot.

I read so many reiews about these cakes I just had to try it. I prepared with 1 1/2 lbs. of catfish fillets and baked them in the oven 1st. Added my own special seasonings as if I were going t...

Having read the reviews, I decided to make these cakes for dinner last night. The only change I made was to dredge the cakes in flour before frying to give them a crispier crust. They were del...

The recipe was a hit! It was quick and easy and delicioius. I baked the fish (actually used white sole fillet) at 450 degrees for 10 minutes to retain the taste. Then flaked it and mixed in a...

These were great! Baked the fish instead of boiling, to keep it from being soggy and losing flavor. Used about a sleeve and a hald of crackers and it was just right.

FABULOUS and soooo easy! I began heating the oil first and microwaved the fish 3-5 minutes(used cod). I eyeballed all the ingredients (1 1/2 sleeves of crackers) and by the time I mixed and ma...

Excellent! I followed the recipe exactly, except substituted Orange Roughy for Catfish. I am a HORRIBLE cook, and these turned out amazingly well. I always find a way to mess up even the simp...

I had to rate this recipe because it is hands down one of my faves. I use Keebler Onion flavored crackers instead of the plain buttery ones the recipe calls for. I just can't compliment this r...

Excellent. Better than most crabcakes I've had as appetizers in some fancy restaurants. Catfish nuggets were on sale this week at the gocery, and they work perfectly in this recipe instead of th...
