YIELD: 2 gallons for coating catfish, salmon or shrimp
10 sweet potatoes, finely shredded as needed, canola oil 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 cup panko breadcrumbs 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg to taste salt and pepper
Fry the shredded sweet potatoes in canola oil at 375°F for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oil and let dry on paper towels.
Mix together remaining ingredients; then mix with fried potatoes in a dry bowl. Transfer mixture to a food processor, and process very briefly (don't overprocess, which will make the mixture too moist).
Coat catfish or other seafood with crust mixture and bake in oven at 375°F.
