FRIED CATFISH FILLETS

Ingredients :

  • 1 to 2 pounds fresh catfish fillets
    Milk or buttermilk for soaking
    3 eggs
    1 cup all-purpose flour or can use cornmeal. (I love them both ways)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    3/4 cup oil

Directions :

  1. Place fillets in a 9 x 13 pan and cover with milk or buttermilk.  Let soak for about an hour in the refrigerator.  In a large bowl mix flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. In a smaller bowl whisk eggs until smooth.  Remove fish from milk and discard the milk.  Dip fillets in egg and then in flour mixture.  Make sure you have about 1/2 inch of oil in your skillet.  Fry on each side until golden brown; about 6 or 7 minutes.  Drain and Enjoy!
