To complete this recipe in 30 minutes, preheat yor oven before assembling your ingredients. Trout, flounder, or tilapia fillets make good alternatives to the catfish -- if the fillets are small, buy 3 and do not cut them in half. Serve with lemon wedges or, if you've got a few extra minutes, with Tartar Sauce.
1. HEAT OVEN AND SEASON FISH
Adjust oven rack to middle position an heat oven to 200 degrees. Season fish with salt and pepper and set aside. Mix flour and cornmeal together in shallow dish and set aside.
2. HEAT OIL AND BREAD FISH:
Wipe out skillet with paper towels, add oil, and return to medium-high heat until shimmering. Meanwhile, dredge fish in cornmeal mixture, one piece at a time. Press on breading to make sure it adheres.
3. FRY FISH:
Fry fillets until golden on both sides, about 4 minutes total (if fillets are large, you may need to fry in two batches). Remove fried fish from oil and let drain briefly on paper towel-lined plate (if necessary, keep first batch warm in oven). To serve, top succotash with fish on platter or individual plates.
Seasoning fish with salt and pepper while preparing the succotash draws moisture to the surface, give the cornmeal something to stick to.
If using Salmon, which is harder to cook through, cook salmon first.
