How to make it

  • Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet to 350 degrees. About 1 1/2 inches depth.
  • Combine cornmeal, flour, salt, cayenne pepper and garlic powder.
  • Coat fish with thin layer of mustard on both sides.
  • Dredge catfish in cornmeal mixture.
  • Fry fish for about 5-6 minutes.
  • Remember don't overcrowd your pan or it won't be as crispy. I usually fry 1-2 fillets at a time.

    OMG! Super delicious, crispy and crunchy on the outside, tender and flaky on the inside no fishy taste whatsoever. One of my new favorites.
