what you need
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 (4-ounce) American Pride catfish fillets
make it
Fill a Dutch oven or a deep fryer half full with vegetable oil. Heat oil to 350°F.

In a shallow bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Coat catfish fillets with mixture, shaking off excess.

Fry catfish in a single layer for 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden brown, turning several times. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Rated  by a cook on 7/11/2009 I used this recipe last night and the catfish turned out yummy! The coating was very crunchy and delicious! I added a sprinkle or two of Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning as well. I plan on saving this one and using it again. Thanks!
