Southern Fried Catfish

Recipe provided by Café Climb

5-10 filets, or 4-7 whole Catfish

Ingredients

For the dry:

·      1 pound of cornmeal

·      1 pound of all-purpose flour

·      1 tablespoon of garlic powder

·      1 tablespoon of onion powder

·      1 ½ teaspoons of parsley flakes

·      1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

·      1 tablespoon black pepper

·      2 teaspoon kosher salt

 *Adjust seasoning quantities to taste

For the Egg wash:

·      1 dozen large eggs (cracked), or 1 quart of liquid eggs

·      2 cups of milk

·      1 ½ teaspoon of Zataran’s crab boil

·      1 tablespoon of black pepper

·      2 teaspoon kosher salt

·      A few dashes of Crystal’s hot sauce

 *Adjust seasoning quantities to taste.

Method

-      Combine dry and egg wash ingredients separately, coat your Catfish in your egg wash, then your dry mix, then into a fryer at 350F.  Fry for 4 to 6 minutes, until golden brown.

-      At first, try a test piece to get your preferred seasoning mixture, then fry the rest.

-      If you find your Catfish to have a “muddy” taste, try soaking it in buttermilk overnight before your fish fry.

-      Also, if you like a stronger cornmeal fry mix, try a 2 to 1 or 3 to 1 ratio for cornmeal to flour.

Show me more recipe please.you have

my daughter (demeka) and I (ruby) love this fish batter recipe. even the leftover fish was good eating cold from the refrigerator. will be checking out other recipes from your website. thanks a bunch.

Thanks for the recipe! My family loved it!! The crust/breading comes out beautiful, perfect and delicious and the fish was so moist. The only thing that we were missing was the Crystals Hot Sauce since I could not find it at my grocery store so we improvised with Tabasco sauce. Super delicious fish dinner! I served it up with some lemon wedges, cajun rice and corn on the cob.
