This catfish recipe uses a simple cornmeal coating. The fish is deep fried to perfection.
- corn oil for deep-frying
- 3 to 4 catfish fillets, about 1 to 1 1/4 pounds
- 3/4 cup cornmeal
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
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.
