More ideas for preparing Catfish
My favorite way to cook catfish is to clean and fillet or cut up how you like it cut up . After washing the fish , squeeze out most of water; salt and pepper to taste and dredge in a 50-50 mixture of cornmeal and flour , patting to coat good. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
You can also bake in oven on a grill on a cookie sheet. you may also use any spices you prefer and serve with tarter sauce.
