    1. 1
      Preheat the oil in a deep fat fryer to 375°F.
    2. 2
      Cut the fish into 2 to 3 ounce pieces.
    3. 3
      Combine mustard, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, cream, water, and wine in a large mixing bowl until well blended.
    4. 4
      Put the white cornmeal in a food processor and blend at high speed for about 2 minutes; It will make the mixture much finer.
    5. 5
      Pour the mixture into another large, dry mixing bowl and add the flour and remaining ingredients, except for the cooking oil.
    6. 6
      Mix well together until well blended; coat the fish pieces in the mustard mixture, then roll the fish in the dry cornmeal/flour mixture.
    7. 7
      Fry the fish in a deep fat fryer at 375°F; the fish should float to the top of the grease and turn a golden brown.
    8. 8
      Remove from the fryer and drain on a stack of dry paper towels.
    9. 9
      This makes awesome Po' Boy's or just plain old fish sandwiches.

      Found some beautiful catfish fillets at Costco. This is a great recipe for frying up some catfish!. I served with collard greens and corn bread. Also a peach cobbler for dessert! It was the perfect main course for a southern feast! Thanks Janet!
