    1. 1
      In one pie plate, combine the milk and pepper; this is your 'wet' mix.
    2. 2
      In another pie plate, combine the flour, cornmeal and paprika; this is your 'dry' mix.
    3. 3
      In an electric skillet, heat the oil to 350°F.
    4. 4
      Dip fish into the 'wet' mix, then roll in the 'dry' mix to cover completely.
    5. 5
      Fry the fish filets, a few at a time, in the hot oil for approx 4 min or less per side, until the fish is nicely browned and serve.
    6. 6
      Don't fry them all at the same time or you'll cool down the oil too much and it will have to heat back up to temperature (NOT a good thing).
    7. 7
      If frying in a dutch oven, use a meat thermometer to check your oil temperature, before you fry.
    8. 8
      If using a deep fryer machine, please follow your manufacturer's instructions/booklet.
    9. 9
      Substitutions: if haddock isn't available, substitute hake, pollock, flounder, tilapia or cod instead; you can also use the SKIM version of evaporated milk.

      This is a really good fish mix, I used catfish caught out of our pond and my mom LOVED it and she doesn't care for catfish at all. My husband liked it as well. The only thing I would do different and would of, if my child hadn't called in the middle of me cooking was salt them as soon as they came out of the oil. I think they would of been even better, but this is a winner in my book.
