  • corn oil for deep-frying
  • 3 to 4 catfish fillets, about 1 to 1 1/4 pounds
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • salt to taste, if desired
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


Cut each catfish fillet in half crosswise.
Combine the cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.
Dredge the fish fillets in the cornmeal, patting to make the cornmeal cling to the fillets. Drop the fillets in deep hot oil at about 370°. Cook 5 to 10 minutes, or until crisp and brown.
Serve with slaw, ketchup, and hush puppies.
Serves 4.
