The process of soaking the fish in milk is truly an old fashioned preparation method. This began before refrigerators were common in the household. Back then, if you had fish that was not caught that day and might have a bit of an odor to it, milk was used to get rid of the fishy stink, as it is a natural deodorizer.

I tried this last night and it was the best breading I have ever used. I tried it on tilapia fillets. I seasoned the fish with salt and pepper once I took them out of the skillet. The fish was not oily either like mine usually is. This will be the fish breading recipe that I use from now on.

I am not a fan of catfish, but my family is. I was wondering why do you soak it in milk? I think why I don't like catfish is because to me it has a strong fish flavor and I like the milder tasting fish. When I use breading on my fish my family says it is too much. I will have to try this.
