can this be made with "real" potatoes???

No, you cant use real potatoes for this recipe, potato flakes are used as a breading not a topping.

Thanks for the recipe. I am Gf and one brand of potato flakes I can have so this looks good, easy and I love catfish. Missing getting to eat it out at resturants. Not knowing how are where prepared. Wish would do more GF recipies Thanks!

It looks good.

thank you bonitageri

I have a fish market that sells potato crusted cod. Very similar to the catfish recipe. But, they recommend baking in 450 oven for 10-12 minutes Delicious and no frying involved!

How about baking this recipe ?
