Fried Catfish #2

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by BakinBaby

DH has been catching so.. much catfish, that we've come up with another different tried and true. This one is fried in oil with lots of spice. Soaking in buttermilk is good, but if you're not into buttermilk, you may sub milk. Enjoy.

I also added all the spices to the flour mixture, the only thing I would add is some more cayenne. This is a keeper! Thanks!
