on that note:
Tommycat's Southern fried catfish
1 cup Corn Meal
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red pepper
2 tsp salt(or to taste)
1 tsp pepper
1/4 Cup buttermilk (optional)
vegetable oil... um enough to fry stuff in...
a bottle of ketchup(may use catsup if no ketchup is available)
Start heating up your vegetable oil. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Crack eggs into a second bowl. Mix buttermilk into eggs.
Take your catfish fillets and soak them in the milk and eggs until nicely coated. Then drop it in the dry ingredients and shake the bowl until the fillet is covered all the way.
By this time your oil should be hot enough to cook stuff(right around 375ºf should do it). Carefully put your catfish in the oil. If you burn yourself, it's your own fault.
Give it about 5 minutes.
is it done yet?
How bout now...
Okay. put it in a basket with paper towels to take off some of the oil.
Couple drops of Tobasco and or ketchup like stuff, and you're ready to eat.
