Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
4 catfish fillets

Buttermilk (or milk) to cover the fillets

Cornmeal for dredging

Salt and pepper

1-2 tablespoons of Old Bay seasoning (optional)

Vegetable oil

Lemon wedges (for garnish)

Preparation

  • Place the catfish fillets in a wide bowl and cover with the buttermilk or milk. Let it soak for about an hour (although even 30 minutes will improve the flavor).
  • Remove the fillets from the milk and dredge them in the cornmeal. Pat them on both sides to make sure the cornmeal coating adheres well.
  • Fry the fillets in about an inch of moderately hot oil, about 5 minutes per side, until nice and golden brown.
  • Serve hot with lemon wedges.
