Cod fish is one of my favorites.  Give me some fish,  hush puppies and fried potatoes and I am one happy camper!  This easy recipe will make your mouth water.

1 pound cod fish fillets
3/4 cup buttermilk (could use regular milk)
1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional) We like the garlic!
1/4 cup oil (I use Canola)
Mix the cornmeal, salt, pepper and garlic powder together in a shallow pan.  Dip fillets in buttermilk, then in cornmeal mixture.  Brown on both sides in hot oil.  Turn heat down to medium and let cook about 5 to 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
Try my Southern cornmeal hushpuppies and fried potatoes, too!

  1. How many servings is this recipe? I am cooking for me, husband, and two adult sons.

  2. I do love fish of any kind served with hushpuppies and potatoes Yum yum yummy thanks for sharing..

  3. Yummmmmmmm!!! My mouth is watering!! My husband and I love pan fried cod, and I totally agree that some fried fish with hush puppies, coleslaw, and fried tators is the absolute best! I have to add that I also have come to love and appreciate fried pickles with this meal! :)

  4. Wonderful. I’ve been hoping to see you do a fish like this. It looks fantastic. I’m glad they’re pan fried too since I don’t like deep frying at home. (Too messy.)

  5. It DOES make my mouth water, Judy! As does the thought of hush puppies and fried potatoes. :-) I like the garlic, too. We use a lot of it, especially now with our garden vegetables coming in.
