DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet, fill pan with 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. Turn on heat to medium or medium high heat.
  • Dip catfish in milk, then in cornmeal. Shake off excess cornmeal.
  • Once oil is hot, begin frying fish in batches until they are golden brown. Flip fish so each side is cooked evenly.
  • (On the 2nd or3rd batch of fish, you may want to reduce the pan heat because it will be extra hot). Add extra oil if needed.
  • Drain fish on paper towels and sprinkle with salt or seasoning salt.
  • Serve hot with tartar sauce.
