Crispy, yummy and we ate it all up, so that means it's good! This is my new recipe for frying catfish!
My BF and I went to a catfish farm recently and caught 8 of the most beautiful catfish ( if you can call them that!) you have ever seen. I even filleted them myself and decided they deserved to be fried to a crispy goodness! This made a great, light, and extra crispy coating for the fillets. We both loved them... Since the catfish was so fresh, I only soaked the fillets for a few minutes as I prepared the coating. I used 8 fillets and still had plenty of cormeal mixture leftover so I will cut back a little next time... otherwise just another great recipe! I served it with Tartar Sauce for a delicious meal my BF still raves about!
This is pretty much a standard catfish recipe. Nothing to get too excited about but a decent stand by recipe. Soaking the Catfish left it a little mushy for my taste. Overall, this is a good base recipe and I look forward to working with the ingredients and making some changes. Thank you for posting!
Kittencal, all I can say is you oudid yourself again.. as dh said this was the best fish i've ever fried.. so crispy and tasty.. I did cut back on season salt to 1 1/2 tsp. Will definately make this again soon. Nita
This recipe actually brought back memories of a fish-and-chips restaurant that my husband and I frequented when we lived in Nevada! It reminded me so much of their catfish nuggets that I found myself craving a bowl of thier coleslaw. Excellent recipe!
