Golden Fried Catfish

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 :

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 365°F (185°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 !
