Southern Fried Catfish

Nothing says southern like deep fried catfish.

  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tsp. salt
  • 1 Tsp. ground red pepper
  • 1/4 Tsp. garlic powder, to taste
  • 6 (4 ounce) farm-raised catfish fillets
  • 1/4 Tsp. salt
  • Peanut or vegetable oil


Combine first five (5) ingredients in a large shallow dish. Sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt; dredge in cornmeal mixture, coating evenly. POUR oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches into a deep cast-iron skillet; heat to 350 degrees. Fry fish, in batches, 5 to 6 minutes or until golden; drain on paper towels.
