This blue catfish recipe uses Cajun spices and is fried to perfection. I love a thin, spicy coating and dipping in tartar sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. catfish fillets
  • 1 cup ground yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning*
  • oil for frying
  • lemon wedges

Instructions:


Whip the eggs and beer together and add the seasoning. Mix the cornmeal and flour together and place on a plate. Dip the fillet in the seasoned egg mixture and place on the cornmeal/flour mixture. Sprinkle the top of the fillet with the dry mixture and press in with your hand. Place on a baking sheet and repeat until all fillets are coated. Let fish stand for 15 minutes before cooking them in the hot oil.


Meanwhile, preheat oil to 350 degrees on medium-high heat in a heavy skillet or cast iron pan.

Carefully place a few pieces of fish in the oil and do not overcrowd. Fry until brown and crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes per side (depending on how thick and big the fillets are). If the fish easily flakes with a fork, it is done. Place on paper towels and season with a squirt of lemon juice and salt.

Serve with homemade tartar sauce and French fries or potato wedges.

*If you do not have Cajun seasoning, please feel free to use Old Bay seasoning or a couple drops of hot sauce.
