Tilapia, catfish, whitefish, striped bass, haddock or scrod are good choices for the fish. Made this with Cod and it was delicious. Next time I will salt and pepper fillets before adding crumb mixture.
Being a southerner with a bunch of fishermen in my family, we usually have an abundance of catfish in the freezer. I decided if tilapia could be parmesan encrusted, so could catfish. My mom and I prefer these over fried catfish.
Creole Catfish Cakes: Place catfish fillets in a single layer in a large saucepan or Dutch oven and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool in stock.
