Fried Channel Catfish Fingers Recipe

Buttermilk and cornmeal go hand in hand with fried fish fingers and this channel catfish recipe is no exception

For beer-battered catfish fingers, substitute the eggs with a 12-ounce bottle of your favorite beer.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound channel catfish fillets
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon homemade garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon homemade onion powder
  • ¾ cup cornmeal
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Peanut or canola oil, for frying

Directions:


1. Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a cast-iron pan or heavy skillet to 350 degrees.


2. Whip eggs with garlic and onion powder until foamy. Mix cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper together and place on a paper plate.


3. Dip catfish fillets in the seasoned egg and dredge in the cornmeal mixture. Place on a baking sheet and repeat until fillets are coated. Let fingers sit for 15 minutes. This prevents the breading from falling off.

4. Slowly lower a few catfish fingers into the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain.

5. Serve with Tasty Fish Dipping Sauce.
