Golden Fried Catfish

Fried catfish is a Southern tradition, along with buttermilk pups and buttermilk coleslaw. Try these traditional foods together.

  • ingredients :

Β° Half a cup of milk
Β° Half a cup of water
Β° Salt / pepper
Β° 1 pound catfish fillets, sliced
Β° 1 cup fine cornmeal
Β° Allpurpose flour cup
Β° 1 tsp seafood season, ((such as Old Bayℒ️))
Β° 1 L vegetable oil For fry

  • Directions :

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Heat oil in deep fryer to 365Β°F (185Β°C).

Step 4

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.


Enjoy !
