the best damn catfish you'll ever make - from the Mustard Museum


  1. THE DAY BEFORE - combine the mustard with egg and add the catfish.
  2. Cover and marinate overnight.
  3. The next day, place enough oil in an 8 quart saucepan or dutch oven (or fryer) to hold the catfish fillets in two batches (up to eight cups of oil).
  4. Heat oil to 360 degrees.
  5. Mix the dry ingredients and spices together.
  6. Roll the catfish fillets in the dry mix.
  7. Shake off the excess and fry about 5 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Drain and serve hot.
