Fried Catfish
5.0 from 1 reviews
Print
Prep time: 30 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 35 mins
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 pound catfish fillets
  • For the marinade:
  • 1 cup milk + 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or 1 cup buttermilk)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Tabasco sauce to taste, a few dashes
  • For the breading:
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Oil for frying (about 3 cups)
Instructions
  1. Cut fish into pieces about 1″ wide by 4″ long.
  2. Combine marinade ingredients and immerse fish in marinade. Allow to sit at room temperature for 10-30 minutes. (Now’s a great time to make your tartar sauce and coleslaw!)
  3. Combine the breading ingredients in a shallow bowl. Coat each piece of fish and set aside to rest while your oil gets up to temperature.
  4. Heat 1/2″ of oil in a large skillet to 360-365 degrees F.
  5. Fry a few pieces at a time (don’t over crowd the skillet) for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they float away from the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Drain on a rack over paper for at least 3 minutes to avoid burning your mouth. Them fishes is HOT!

I used to live in PA,we could get fresh catfish for $4.99/lb...

I now live in NC,you would think being farther south we could get it bout the same price,maybe even $1 less...

NOPE!

Catfish down here cost $8.99/lb or more...I don't get it (price hike) especially cuz I like it (cajun seasoned,favorite side dish is some flavored rice and a side salad) but since we moved-I think we've purchased it twice.

Well I'm not a big fish eater-but I do like catfish-as long as it's well seasoned.
