Cajun Catfish from the Betty Crocker site!

Cajun Catfish

You Need:


2
cups vegetable oil
1
cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2
cup stone-ground cornmeal
2
tablespoons Cajun Creole seasoning
1
teaspoon onion powder
1
teaspoon garlic powder
1/2
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1
egg
2
pounds catfish nuggets, skin removed
Salt
1/4
cup lemon juice

To Make:

  • 1In heavy 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat to 375°F.
  • 2In shallow dish, stir together flour, cornmeal, Creole seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder and red pepper. In another shallow dish, beat egg with fork until foamy.
  • 3Sprinkle catfish nuggets with salt and lemon juice. Dip each nugget into beaten egg, then roll in flour mixture to coat. Drop 4 to 6 nuggets at a time into hot oil. Cook 2 minutes; turn and cook 1 minute longer or until deep golden brown. Remove from oil; drain on paper towels.

Tips:

If you can't find catfish nuggets at your supermarket, you can purchase 2 pounds of catfish fillets and cut them into about 2-inch pieces.

A staple in Georgia and Mississippi, fried catfish morsels are dynamite dunked in tangy tartar sauce and served with coleslaw and baked beans.

Don't think over ever had catfish. Doesn't round too appealing to me.

Wow.  I grew up on catfish.  Can't imagine having never had it.  To me, it tastes like any other fish.  Never could tell the difference with all the fishies out there.  Grew up on catfish, bass, and blue gills.

 Mmmm....love some good catfish:)  Spicing it up with cajun seasonings just makes it that much better!  Give me some hush puppies and tartar sauce, and I'm good to go!
