Southern Fried Catfish

Southern Fried Catfish
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound catfish fillets, cut in strips
  • 1 1/2 cups fine cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay™
  • 1 quart vegetable oil for deep frying


  1. In a small bowl, mix buttermilk, water, salt, and pepper. Pour mixture into a flat pan large enough to hold the fillets. Spread fish in one layer over bottom of pan, turning to coat each side, and set aside to marinate.
  2. In a 2 gallon resealable plastic bag, combine the cornmeal, flour, and seafood seasoning. Add fish to mixture, a few fillets at a time, and tumble gently to coat evenly.
  3. Heat oil in deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
  4. Deep fry fillets until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Avoid overcrowding so fillets have room to brown properly. Fish should be slightly crisp outside, and moist and flaky inside. Drain on paper towels.
