Southern Fried Catfish


° ½ cup buttermilk

° ½ cup of water

° salt and pepper to taste

° 1 pound catfish fillets, cutting to strips

° 1½ c fine cornmeal

° ½ c flour

° 1 tsp seafood seasoning

° 1 liter of vegetable oil for frying 

*Step by step

In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, water, salt and pepper.

Pour the mixture into a flat pan large enough to hold the fillets.

Spread the fish in a single layer on the bottom of the pan, turning to coat each side, and set aside to marinate.

In a 2-gallon resealable plastic bag, combine the cornmeal, flour, and seafood seasoning.

Add the fish to the mixture, a few fillets at a time, and tumble gently to evenly coat.

Heat oil in deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).

Fry fillets until golden brown, about 3 minutes.

Avoid overcrowding so the fillets have room to brown well.

The fish should be slightly crispy on the outside and soft and flaky on the inside.

Drain on paper towels.

Enjoy !
