Teresa's Deep Fried Catfish
Teresa's Deep Fried Catfish Preparation
In a 1-quart mixing bowl, blend all ingredients. Set aside
Ingredients for Frying:
3 pounds catfish
4 cups yellow corn flour or cornmeal
granulated garlic to taste
salt and cracked black pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
Using a home-style deep fryer such as a FryDaddy, heat oil according to manufacturer's directions. In a large mixing bowl, blend corn flour, garlic, salt and peppers. Dip catfish in egg batter and then in seasoned corn flour. Fry a few pieces at a time until golden brown and beginning to float. Continue until all seafood is done. NOTE: Fried catfish is best when served hot with cocktail or tartar sauce or when placed on a po'boy.
Deep-frying seafoods is still quite common in the South. High quality vegetable or peanut oil should be used. Corn flour is a double-ground yellow cornmeal that can be found in the gourmet section of most food stores, possibly sold as a pre-packaged fish fry. This recipe is also great with shrimp or oysters.
