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!
