Friday Night Catfish Fry

Thursday, July 29, 2010 @ 08:07 PM

Lots of people out there like a good Friday night fish fry. This not only stems from a religious stand point but also from working all week & not wanting to cook your self on a Friday night. I am a firm believer in not home cooking on Friday nights. If you decide to have a Friday night fish fry at home or while tailgating, here is a recipe to get you started.

Fresh Water

8 large cat fish fillets, cut in half (you can use any kind of fish cod, tillapia,sole, flounder, whatever you want)

4 tbsp of Creole or Cajun seasoning

2 tbsp paprika

2 cups yellow cornmeal of Louisiana fish fry

3 eggs

2 cups flour

Oil for frying

Wash the fillets. Soak in a mixing bowl with enough water to cover the fish, plus 2 tbsp. of Creole or Cajun seasoning and the paprika for 2 hours.

Drain without rinsing.

Mix corm meal or fish fry with remaining 2 tbsp of Cajun or Creole seasoning. Pour eggs into a second bowl & beat.Place flour in a third bowl.

Dredge fish in flour, then eggs, then corn meal mix.

Preheat oil in your Cajun fryer or cast iron cookware on your grill. Drop fish in the fryer & cook until golden brown, approx. 4-6 mins. Remove & place on paper towel lined plates. Serve with hush puppies & cole slaw.
