This is a must with most of my catfish recipes. Delicious on sandwiches, French fries and onion rings.
- 4 channel catfish fillets - cleaned, dried and brushed with oil
- 3 TBS canola oil, for frying
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 2 tsp thyme
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)
Preheat cast iron pan and canola oil on medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, combine the spice mix together in a bowl. Dredge fillets in the flour mixture and gently place two fillets in the pan.
Fry 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Fish is done when it easily flakes with a fork. Drain on paper towels.
Serve with boiled parsley potatoes. Just melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add 1/2 tsp of dried parsley in the butter. Pour over the boiled potatoes.
