This is a great recipe. This one is a keeper. It was absolutly delicious. I added the salt to taste to the coating. We will be making this one for good. Thank you for posting it.
I have used this recipe for years! My only modification is that I use 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper instead of the 1 teaspoon red pepper. Also, because where we live in SE Texas, we are usually cooking fresh catfish, I soak the fish in buttermilk about 30 minutes before frying. This method may be used for catfish filets or frying whole, pansized catfish. Yummy!
This recipe was easy & delicious. I have never eaten or prepared catfish before, but I was impressed with this recipe. *** I dipped in milk first.
Used this to coat catfish DH and I caught while camping. Took the coating with us in a ziploc, breaded fresh catfish fillets (that I had soaked in buttermilk for a few hours) and cooked them in a cast iron skillet over a fire! Yummy! Thank you for sharing!
My husband and I love this recipe! We catch out own catfish and this is our favorite way to prepare it.The only changes that we make are that we increase the Ground Red Pepper to at least 2 teaspoons. We like it with a kick! This recipe is way better than any store bought coating you can buy.
This classic fried catfish was just delicious. So simple and easy to fix. Thanks for posting.
This came out pretty good and husband liked it.When I bread something I usually used only flour but the cornmeal on this gave it a nice crunch.
Delicious. I fixed this for our family of 5 and for my sister and brother in law. It was really good. I had to double the recipe, of course. The ground red pepper gives this fish a really nice kick. I think frying it in the cast iron is the trick. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Zaar Cookbook tag game.
This recipe was delicious! Very easy to make and tastes like I bought it from a restaurant. I doubled the red pepper and garlic powder for an extra kick of flavor. We like to eat our fried catfish on French bread with coleslaw and pickles. Thanks for this great recipe!
Boy did these hit the spot! The one that made me rub my tummy, smile and go for more :) We loved these and my DS has asked me to make them again soon, so this is headed to our favorites to be made again and again!
