I often cook fish this way, usually halibut, but use dried bread crumbs instead of saltines and add a little oregano to the seasonings. I'll try the crackers next time to compare; there's always saltines in the pantry!. I've never done catfish like this, I just think "fried" and "catfish" go together. LOL But I'll give it a whirl next time. The Italian dressing is the perfect marinade, leaving the fish moist and delicious without an overpowering flavor.
