If you love crab cakes, wait until you try catfish cakes, they are just as delicious! This recipe does take more work than most, but there is just something so great about homemade fresh catfish cakes. The fun thing is, you can doctor them up however you may like. If you want cajun seasoning – add it, if you want ranch flavor – add it. Like crab cakes, catfish cakes go great with a sauce. You can try them with a horseraddish sauce, or making a fruit chutney, would lighten the dish up. We totally promote getting creative.
