How to make it

  • Place oil in a deep fryer and heat to 365.
  • Mix eggs, buttermilk, and hot sauce in a bowl and beat well to make an egg wash.
  • Mix cornmeal, flour granulated onion, granulated garlic, Cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper in a small casserole dish.
  • Cut catfish filets into strips approx. 1 inch thickness.
  • Place catfish strips in egg wash mixture and soak for 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove catfish strips from egg wash and drain briefly.
  • Roll wet catfish strips in flower mixture. Allow catfish strips to sit in flour for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove the catfish strips from flour, shake off excess flour and place into hot oil.
  • Fry to a golden brown, turning often.
  • Remove to drip pan or paper towels to drain grease.
  • Season to taste and serve with tartar sauce, hushpuppies and slaw.
  • It’s a good idea to ice down the beers before you start this recipe so they’re good and cold at serving time!
