Fried Catfish Fillets
These catfish fillets are absolutely delicious and super easy to make. Add in our wonderful coleslaw and hushpuppies and you have a great summer meal.
Servings: 6 servings
- 1 to 2 pounds fresh catfish fillets
- Milk or buttermilk for soaking
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup all-purpose flour or can use cornmeal. I love them both ways
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3/4 cup oil
Place fillets in a 9 x 13 pan and cover with milk or buttermilk. Let soak for about an hour in the refrigerator. In a large bowl mix flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. In a smaller bowl whisk eggs until smooth.
Remove fish from milk and discard the milk. Dip fillets in egg and then in flour mixture. Make sure you have about 1/2 inch of oil in your skillet. Fry on each side until golden brown; about 6 or 7 minutes.
