    Olarouge's Note:

    This [fried catfish] recipe is really easy, especially if you don't have much time. If you don't like fish you can use boneless/skinless chicken breasts instead.

      5. Shake off excess mix and gently lay the catfish strips in the iron skillet. place about 5-6 strips at a time in the skillet. Turn strips once maybe twice while cooking until strips are "pancake brown" color. Overcooking the fish will make the bite very crunchy and the taste very dry. The best time for cooking is between 5-7 minutes. Once the fish has achieved it doneness, remove fish from oil and place on a few sheets of stacked paper towel . That's it -- You're ready to enjoy! The catfish strips go well with steamed rice, steamed veggies, and/or you can use them as the meat component in some tacos.
