“Simple, delicious alternative to frying catfish southern style. I was dubious about the mixture of pecans and Dijon, but it worked and produced a slightly tangy, crusty finish to the fish. If you've never tried catfish, it is a real treat. The least "fishy" fish I've ever had. My fillets were huge, so I made 1 1/2 times the topping mixture. From Southern Church Suppers”
