Crispy Fried Catfish Fillets Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 6 thin catfish fillets (about 6 ounces each), skinned
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup cornmeal, yellow or white
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • About 1 cup lard for frying
How to cook Crispy Fried Catfish Fillets:
  • Rinse the fillets quickly under cold running water, then thoroughly pat dry using paper towels.
  • Mix together the salt, pepper, cornmeal and flour, toss with a fork. Heat about 1/2 to 1-inch of lard in a heavy skillet over medium heat, and meanwhile you can be dredging the fillets in the seasoned cornmeal mixture.
  • When the lard is hot enough and not yet at the smoking stage, lay in the fillets, a couple at a time, leaving enough space between to fry up crisp and juice, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels.
  • Serve the Crispy Fried Catfish Fillets with lemon wedges, hush puppies, cole slaw, mustard greens and ham hocks, and fried apples or onion rings.
