Found some beautiful catfish fillets at Costco. This is a great recipe for frying up some catfish!. I served with collard greens and corn bread. Also a peach cobbler for dessert! It was the perfect main course for a southern feast! Thanks Janet!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oil in a deep fat fryer to 375°F.
  2. Cut the fish into 2 to 3 ounce pieces.
  3. Combine mustard, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, cream, water, and wine in a large mixing bowl until well blended.
  4. Put the white cornmeal in a food processor and blend at high speed for about 2 minutes; It will make the mixture much finer.
  5. Pour the mixture into another large, dry mixing bowl and add the flour and remaining ingredients, except for the cooking oil.
  6. Mix well together until well blended; coat the fish pieces in the mustard mixture, then roll the fish in the dry cornmeal/flour mixture.
  7. Fry the fish in a deep fat fryer at 375°F; the fish should float to the top of the grease and turn a golden brown.
  8. Remove from the fryer and drain on a stack of dry paper towels.
  9. This makes awesome Po' Boy's or just plain old fish sandwiches.
