Fried Catfish (or substitute your favorite fish)


Cole Slaw

Hushpuppies


Iced Tea

Pecan Pie

 

Ingredients:

  • Catfish fillets (3 or 4 medium pieces per person) any firm fish may be used.
  • 1 cup corn meal  
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • Enough cooking oil to cover the fish (I use peanut or canola oil)

Instructions:

  • 1. Heat oil in a large, heavy frying pan over medium heat.
  • 2. Combine all dry ingredients on a plate, mix well
  • 3. Beat eggs and buttermilk together in a separate medium size bowl
  • 4. Wash catfish fillets and pat dry.
  • 5. Dip fillets in the egg wash, shake off excess then roll in the cornmeal mix to coat thoroughly on all sides.
  • 6. Make sure oil is hot, (place handle of a wooden spoon in the oil. Bubbles should rise around the handle immediately. If not, the oil is not hot enough.)
  • 7. Place the fish in the hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides. Do not crowd the fish in the pan.
  • 8. Drain on paper towels and serve hot
