Cooking Ingredients for Fried Catfish #1 Recipe

-(commercial or see recipe)

Fried Catfish #1 Preparation

This is the quickest way I know to enjoy the flavor of catfish. Soaking in milk makes the fish mild in taste and tender in texture. You don”t necessarily have to deep-fry this one, though that is the most common method used in the South. I like it pan-fried just as well. It is a completely different dish. Cut the fillets into serving pieces of about 4 ounces each. Soak all the fish in the milk for 1 hour. Mix the flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper, and the crab and shrimp seasoning together. Drain the fish and dredge in the cornmeal mixture. Deep-fry in 375o oil, a few pieces at a time, until golden brown. Keep pieces warm in a 200o oven until all is complete, or pan-fry on both sides in a bit of oil or butter until the fish is lightly browned and done to your liking. Do not overcook catfish. Traditionally, deep-fried catfish was served with hushpuppies. I am convinced that you also need a great deal of very cold beer with this catfish fry. From <The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American>.
