Fried catfish is a Southern tradition, along with buttermilk pups and buttermilk coleslaw. Try these traditional foods together.
- ingredients :
° Half a cup of milk
° Half a cup of water
° Salt / pepper
° 1 pound catfish fillets, sliced
° 1 cup fine cornmeal
° Allpurpose flour cup
° 1 tsp seafood season, ((such as Old Bay™️))
° 1 L vegetable oil For fry
- Directions :
In a small bowl, mix the milk, water, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture into a flat pan large enough to accommodate the fillets. Lay the fish out in a single layer over the bottom of the pan, turning each side to coat and set aside to marinate.
In a 2-gallon resealable plastic bag, combine cornmeal, flour, and seafood seasoning. Add the fish to the mixture, a few fillets at a time, and mix gently until evenly coated.
Heat oil in deep fryer to 365°F (185°C).
Fry the fillets until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Avoid crowding so the fillets have room to brown properly. The fish should be slightly crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. Lay out paper towels.
