Ingredients:

  • 1 lb catfish fillets, cut in strips
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp homemade Old Bay seasoning, or to taste
  • 1 quart of canola oil for frying

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup homemade buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 TBS homemade onion powder
  • 2 tsp homemade garlic powder
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:


In a large bowl, mix marinade ingredients together. Add the fish fillets and be sure they are covered in the buttermilk mixture. Put in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to marinade.


Meanwhile, in a large resealable (I've used 1 or 2 gallon bags) or paper bag, add the cornmeal, flour, cornstarch and Old Bay seasoning to taste. Shake to mix well.

Add fish pieces, a few at a time, and gently roll around gently until fillets are completely covered in mixture. Let sit for at least 20 minutes on cookie cooling racks; this prevents the breading from falling off when frying.

Warm up the oil to 365 degrees. Gently add a few fillets at a time and fry for approximately 3 minutes. Fillets should be crisp, moist and flaky. Drain on paper towels.

Serve with malt vinegar and tartar sauce.
