  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together the cornmeal, panko, ½ c. flour, seasonings and cumin. If you like spicy, add more red/black pepper.
  3. In another dish, place the beaten eggs.
  4. Season the catfish with salt and pepper.
  5. Dust in the flour, dip in the egg and coat in the panko mixture, pressing the crumbs to help them stick. Transfer fillets to a baking sheet.
