Directions

Cleaning and Preparing the Catfish
1. Start by cleaning your catfish in water and vinegar.
2. Rinse and pat dry.
3. Add a thin layer of yellow mustard on the front and back of your catfish.
4. Season with your choice of seasoning on both sides.
Mixing the Dredge and Coating the Catfish
1. Mix cornmeal, flour and cornstarch as well as some more seasoning together.
2. Dredge your catfish filets front to back and make sure you get flour dredge in all of the crevices.
3. Let your filets sit for about 10 minutes before adding them to the hot oil.
Cooking the Catfish
1. Your oil should be at 350° F before dropping the filets in.
2. Cook your filets until golden brown on each side. Use a fish spatula to help you flip so that you do not break your filets.
3. Once your filet is finished cooking, remove from the heat and drain on a wire rack or paper towel.
Serving the Catfish

2. Add lemon butter sauce or hot sauce.
