Crispy Southern Fried Catfish

Southern Bytes

Ingredients - catfish, flour, eggs, buttermilk, cornmeal, Tabasco, & spices.

Combine eggs, milk, & hot sauce in a bowl and whisk together.

Coat catfish in the egg mixture.

Now combine flour, cornmeal and spices.

Coat catfish fillets in cornmeal coating, then cover and refrigerate.

Heat the fryer while the catfish is resting. 

(Resting the catfish will help the breading stick.)

Fry catfish fillets until lightly browned. 

Rest fillets on a rack OVER a towel - this will keep them from getting soggy. Extra crispy fish!

If you want to get really crazy, top with a scoop of Crawfish Étouffée.
