Catfish is my husband's favorite. Mine is crappie, but this is how he likes his catfish.

Nice batter.....needs a little more seasoning though for my taste; pepper, etc.... but the batter held onto the fish like a pro! (I did let it soak for about 10 minutes while the oil was heating up)

  1. Wash catfish and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Cut fish into 1 inch cubes.
  3. Place on paper towels and set aside while doing next step.
  4. COMBINE: Flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Add milk, egg and butter; beat until smooth.
