      • Catfish fillets (3 or 4 medium pieces per person) any firm fish may be used.
      • 1 cup corn meal {}
      • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
      • 2 teaspoons salt
      • 1 teaspoon black pepper
      • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
      • 2 medium eggs
      • 1/4 cup buttermilk
      • Enough cooking oil to cover the fish (I use peanut or canola oil)


      • 1. Heat oil in a large, heavy frying pan over medium heat.
      • 2. Combine all dry ingredients on a plate, mix well
      • 3. Beat eggs and buttermilk together in a separate medium size bowl
      • 4. Wash catfish fillets and pat dry.
      • 5. Dip fillets in the egg wash, shake off excess then roll in the cornmeal mix to coat thoroughly on all sides.
      • 6. Make sure oil is hot, (place handle of a wooden spoon in the oil. Bubbles should rise around the handle immediately. If not, the oil is not hot enough.)
      • 7. Place the fish in the hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides. Do not crowd the fish in the pan.
      • 8. Drain on paper towels and serve hot
